I love winter. I love watching the snow fall, I love the anticipation of a storm coming. I love the family time when a storm hits and we're snowed in. I love cozy blankets and quiet nights at home. I love hot drinks: coffee, cocoa, tea. They taste better when it's cold.
I love snowy boots and taking snowy pictures and watching my snowy dog.
I love homeschooling in the winter. We tend to settle into our studies more. We get more done.
I love how my teens pursue hobbies that they'll put away when warm weather comes. Often, in their spare time, they are intent over a keyboard writing books. I love the creativity.
I love having time to declutter and organize the house. It feels good to lighten our load.
Soon enough spring will come and I'll be ready to welcome it gladly. But right now, today, I thank God for winter.
“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning." Daniel 2:20-21
