Winter came in October this year. The snow fell. The temperature dropped. There was nothing I could do about it except sit back and enjoy all that it brings. The world is in repose. There’s no need to hurry and fuss. Nature rests and so must we.
The snow lights up the dark mornings and evenings. It covers the ground in holy whiteness. No need to wipe the dirt off Sheba’s paws. She can roll and dig in the snow to her hearts content. I feel a peace grow inside as I gaze at my surrounding architecture. Love is here. Serenity is here. I hear the words of St. Teresa of Avila.
“Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.”

But when you have to leave the house…not so much! I look forward to the day when I can sit back and enjoy the snow- until it’s time to shovel, lol.
That’s true! I’m sorta looking forward to hibernating. 😀
I rarely ever experience snow anymore. Some days I am glad for this, but your post today has made me miss it. “Nature rests and so must we.” I love that!
