"To Everything There is a Season"
Ecclesiastes 3

It seems lately, many are complaining about winter.... lovely beautiful glistening peaceful winter....... they are longing for spring.... wishing for it to hurry and arrive .....wishing their lives away......

Spring is beautiful ~ all of the seasons are ~ thus so is winter.

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant." ~Anne Bradstreet

"The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination." ~ Terri Guillemets

"Winter came down to our home one night, quiety pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow, and we, we were children once again." ~ Bill Morgan, Jr.

"In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy." ~ William Blake

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." ~ Edith Sitwell

Here's to appreciating winter, in all its beauty!
