Seasons Change

Heavy 
Like a snow-drenched
tree branch-
I feel the weight 
of my thoughts.
Holding on to You 
with all my strength 
 I sing
Your praises

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.  Romans 8:25

I am patiently waiting. Though seasons are only temporary, it seems like this winter is never-ending.  And just the exact moment we can’t take anymore, He will bring the warmth of spring.  I love seeing the snow-covered trees, but this morning I was thinking about how hard it is on them to carry the extra weight of the snow on their branches.  A spectacular display- but a heavy load, nonetheless.  There are times I feel like those snow-drenched trees…putting on a happy face for others, but feeling the weight of the world inside. I am thankful for a Savior that knows my every thought- and I am thankful that He can carry the burdens for me.

So I’ll find joy in one last snowfall…

  And I’ll enjoy walking Mr Santa Paws…IMG_0654

 and I will cast my cares upon Him

 and be thankful!

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.

2 Thessalonians 3:16
