As of late, I have found myself deeply moved throughout the day by snippets of winter scenes that unfold in front of me. My iphone has become one with my hand as I have felt compelled to capture the beauty before me and tuck it away for future enjoyment.
This is a strange and foreign behavior for me because winter is usually a season that I find myself head down, eyebrows furrowed, energy focused on doing everything possible to get through the dreary months lickity split.
But as I laid my sleepy eyes upon this glorious sunrise, my soul was stirred.
This quiet snowfall that caused a hush to fall over the land as it wrapped itself around every nook and cranny left me silent and peaceful.
This magnificent sunset stopped me dead in my tracks with shivers running up and down my spine whilst bustling through a frozen parking lot.
And this morning as I was frantically dashing through the snow, this capture made me realize that it’s time for me to slow down and savor every moment.
For I don’t know for certain how many I’ve got left.
It’s almost as if God has set a gentle hand upon my shoulder and whispered silently into my being…
Savor today. Every. single. moment.
I hope that you will too.
