Winter and the Seasons of Life

Kind readers, here are some photos of my world right now. It is definately winter on the East Coast. All around me are glimpses of God's presence in his creation and I am forever in awe of it all and ever grateful to take it all in.

I am reminded that just as there are seasons in nature, there are seasons in life where I need to slow down. I need to return to what is needed, as Jesus told Martha. (Luke 10:40) I am in need of simplifying my life here at home, much rest and to just keep my priorities straight. I want to be still and just be known by God and know God. So, I am setting my blog aside for a time-just a season-and will return again.

When the presence
of the Lord
really becomes your
experience, you will
actually discover that,
you have gradually begun to love this silence
and peaceful rest which comes with
His presence.
~Madame Guyon

Your world is beautiful ~ if a tad cold. ☺ May His peace enfold you & center you so you stand fully in the Light. Blessings.
