The beauty and uniqueness of winter is a winter land God given gift to us.
In Texas we sometime have such beautiful unseasonable spring-like weather.
It can feel warm one day and suddenly it’s shivery from the wind touched by winter.
Sometimes there is sleet, rain, frog, frost, and sometimes the grounds are covered with a wonderful sight of a blanket of pure soft white snow. All this beauty is what winter can bring; it is like a winter tide greeting card from God, but too quickly the snow begin to melt, yet the memory remain.
Sometimes the harsh winds of winter bring adversity and pain from its frigid cold touch when your mother dies, and when your refuge is only a cold garage floor, but after winter, God gives Spring
The dip in temperature sometimes makes you just want to hibernate from the cutting cold, wind blowing freezing weather, but when you enter out into the wintry of God’s designed weather, in Glee you go enjoying the frost…enjoying the chill and all that winter gives.
Texas winter is such a joy to have. We see the birds all seasons long. Birds on bare tree branches, some on power lines all eyes can see as they go to and fro. In November comes Thanksgiving, saying the preparation of winter had come, and then comes Christmas. Glory in Thanksgiving to God in the Highest for giving us His wonderful gift of winter.
Psalms 146:15-18 KJV
He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth: His Word runneth very swiftly.
He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
H casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?
He sendeth out His word, and melteth them: He causeth His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
Isaiah 55:10 NIV
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish,
So that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
