Enclosed


There is a magical beauty in an ice-enclosed world. Yes, ice creates danger and can wreck havoc on the roads, though that seems only to add to its intensity. I do not like danger, but it causes dependence to be put in the right places. The idea that we, with all our modern technology, have absolutely no control over something is humbling.  


It takes trust to be enclosed without fear. Both for us and for the flowers. It adds a whole new perspective to  Matthew 6:27-30 --

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?


Ice will come. We get to choose whether or not it is a blessing.


Continuing with gratitude. . .
