Beautiful season

When it starts to get cold, I'll admit it, my tendency is to stay inside and huddle under the covers. Well, not this year! I decided I would enjoy this coming winter, snow and all.

I went to a local park and walked in silence. I breathed in cold, crisp air and let it renew me.

I looked at the trees and admired the shapes of the branches against the sky.

I walked by the lake and rejoiced at the sight of the sun dancing on the water like diamonds.

I sat on a rock and watched my geese friends play...........and

I've changed my mind about the colder weather. I will always love to be cozy and warm inside my apartment, but venturing outside made such a difference. I am filled with gratitude to God for opening my heart and mind to the true beauty of this season.
