Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice.  The shortest day of the year.  The beginning of one more quarter in the cycle of a year's time.  A day to ponder new beginnings.  The first day of winter.  A day to mentally prepare for the snow, the cold, and the wind that will soon blanket the mountains, the fields, our cities, and our towns.  A time to reflect on all that has passed and all that is to come.  A day to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Christ our King.  A day to reflect on the beauty that is LIFE.  
A lot to do on the shortest day of the year.  I better get started.

What a lonely tree, but I bet God has special plans for it, which will bring it joy. It makes me quite thoughtful about many things just looking at it. Merry Christmas to you who read these good posts from Audrey. Her sister
