The Warmth of Winter

It is Saturday afternoon as I sit here in the quiet, watching the snow and praising the awe and wonder of God's creation. The temperatures are bitterly cold outside and yet I feel a sense of eternal warmth these days as I sit in the arms of God and watch..... I watch as the sun comes and goes. I watch as the temperatures rise and fall. I watch as the snow falls, stops, and dances around. I sit and I watch.... God's creation is simply amazing! But, how can winter be warm, you say?

Well, a friend of mine reminded me on facebook today that as we walk out into the chill of the cold winter days, life becomes a "sacrament" as we enwrap ourselves in the arms of God! Thank you Macrina, for sharing that beautiful Wisdom with me! As we move into a new year, maywe all be blessed and surrounded by the arms of God and the fruits of prayer! Amen!

    Yes that warm Benedictine Hospitality that we all share can change cold hearts and cold weather into sacraments. Blessings from Macrina
