Celebrating Winter | It's actually a lovely thing

It's beautiful.
There's contrast between the white snow and the dark sky and the even darker trees. The nights are crisp. The snow covers everything like God's grace covers me, her, him, and even you. It sparkles with purity and lands softly. Fresh. Water drips from branches, twigs, berries that refuse to let go. It freezes and catches the morning light that glows just like your face the first time you went sledding.
And let's not forget the warm fires, or maybe the sweaters and fuzzy socks. Being closer to another human than usual just trying to stay warm. Hot drinks that you don't want to have in summer. Snow on pine trees. The little things about this cold season that can make it not-so-dreary if you let them.
Winter.
It's actually a lovely thing.
