joy in the morning.

The fierce, bitter winds of winter howl throughout the night, painting a glistening, white canvas with invisible brush strokes.

Despite it’s threatening presence …

morning reveals a masterpiece.

Sometimes our lives are threatened with storms, leaving us feeling empty and cold.

Yet, there is beauty to be found when healing scatters its warmth upon our heartache.

Is there always beauty to be found after raw pain?

Or is it that we never noticed it before?

Both.

What if around the corner, everything will change?’

What if you could step into another dimension and see life very differently than you do right now?

Life is more than what you see.

Today may be grim with heartache and discouragement. You may be lonely and really believe no one cares.

Things are not always as they appear.

God has figured our sadness into the equation and knows you will smile again.

What if God has your concerns taken care of? And you just are not aware of it?

seasons.

If you have the pleasure of living where there are 4 seasons (as defined by the clear observation of buds, green leaves, colored leaves, no leaves), then you really understand the end of one season and the beginning of another.

Looking at life as seasons really helps when you’re hurting.

season 1

Some seasons feel very long. Winter seems to hang on in some places.

Listen. There’s some pretty awful heartache out there. And your pain may feel like winter; never-ending. But I promise you that spring will come again.

So for now, it’s okay to hunker down. And wait.

what if.

Don’t get me wrong southern friends – it’s just that your seasons aren’t so obvious. Although, I’ve been told some southern states have primarily 2 seasons: hot and rainy.

Either way, looking at life as seasons really helps when you’re hurting.

Some seasons feel very long. In some northern states, winter seems to hang on. Sometimes I think us Northerners have a bit of an edge over the Southerners since we really know what the hope of spring means. Months of cold, gray skies makes you long for warm sunshine.

Listen. There’s some pretty awful heartache out there. And your pain may be feel like winter in the North; never-ending. But I promise you that spring will come again.

So for now, it’s okay to hunker down.
