Who cares its winter

Who cares that its winter when you can get days like today. The depth of blue colouring the sky and stillness of the air suggests our perception of seeing into infinity could almost be true. I am reminded of many such days I was privileged to enjoy in Maryland. The locals questioned the sanity of this alien family who wandered outside in shorts and teeshirts – and bare feet – delighting in the beauty of such winter days. Why would freezing temperatures – far colder than we’d ever experienced before – bother us when the sun shone so brightly from a cloudless blue sky? Such a day can cure any negative or depressing thoughts hanging onto us and leave us free to savour the beauty of our environment. If its lousy weather where you are, curl up and read a good book. Whatever you’re doing, find some enjoyment in this day God has given you.
