Good Evening Friends!
On this the shortest day of the year:
We all have winters in our lives;
Darkness fills our world,
Fear is present,
We have a longing for companionship,
Our struggles seem insurmountable,
We feel a sadness that abounds,
Some will forsake us,
Geography can make us feel isolated,
Apart from those we love,
And we will be separated on our journeys.
While you may not in the midst of winter value the “winter” moments, but they help us to look for something to endure and hope again. And appreciate the good times more. For me, I always turn to music with harmonies that defy.
Winter will end, hope will return and you will find a way…as Christ was born for us on a new day.

That is very good interpretation of winter and the darknesses which can occur in life. Having sorrow and being in dark does cause us to appreciate springtime and light & color & happiness when these come our direction. Thank you.
