We moved here in the dead of winter. Clouds were gray, trees were bare, grass was dead, snow was on the ground. Slowly though, this place is coming to life with color. Just wanted to share a couple pics from around the house that show New Life is all around us.
One of the things that has a profound impact for me is the power of the Seasons. Experiencing the 'changes in vegetation' throughout the calendar helps me to experience God's handiwork, while simultaneously entering into His story. Whether it is understanding anew what it means to be washed white as snow, or to celebrate the truth of entering into new birth, God's story can be seen through the seasons.
That being said, I would still move south in a heartbeat and sacrifice the spiritual moment of winter haha.
