  1. Your words bring me such quiet comfort this morning, amongst the hustle of life, slowing down resonates with me. I too look forward to winter for this reason. May your season be blessed.

  2. Kaitlyn,
    Isn’t it just like God to come in human form in the midst of a season that many of us dread?! The winter solstice (least amount of daylight) hits right before Christmas and THAT’s when God chose to bring light into the world. Nothing He does is coincidental. Many people will desert us in our lifetime (friends, spouses, family members), but God is the God who comes, stays, and never leaves. In that, there is immense comfort. We are NEVER alone. Not only does He abide with us, but He gives us, daily, hourly, minute-by-minute, the grace that we need to get through each day. Beautiful post and reminder!! My Florida dwelling mother is hoping we’ll get snow at Christmas during her visit – YOU are not alone 🙂

  3. “I’m finding that hope often grows in the dark and the quiet has so very much to say.” Yes. This. So beautifully said, Kaitlyn. Thank you for the encouragement. The PromisemMaker is the Promise-keeper. Amen!

  4. As one who sort of dreads the arrival of the cold and the grey, but who also deeply appreciates the symbolism of the seasons, I loved this, Kaitlyn. Thank you for these timely words.

  5. No matter how busy our lives get. No matter what we go through should it be in sickness or in pain. We can know God is always with us and that he never leaves us. Yes we might say God where are you. But he is there and he is beside us. His blessing never change. They are new every morning. Sure we have alot to thank God for if we up to see another day and we are breathing. No matter what we are going through that is blessing. God woke us up to enjoy another day in his beautiful world. I know that can be hard if not well or in pain. But still say thank you God. As we have been blessed to see another day in Gods beautiful world. The season will change. God never nor his Love for us. That is why he gave us Jesus. What better Present could we have. We are so blessed. Excellent reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  6. Kaitlyn,

    I, too, was a Florida dweller for twenty years. Did not like the heat & humidity. Now like you I yearn for Fall. Those vibrant colors prove to the world that there is a God. He gives us wonderful sights, smells this time of year. Ours is a God of changing seasons. Everything God does is done for a reason. My belief is that God chose to come in bleak midwinter as we would be slowing down. Not as much activity going on in winter. The world would stop & notice the star in the East lighting the way to Jesus. This fall has been exceptionally hard for my family. My FIL had multiple health issues & was hospitalized twice. Monday before Thanksgiving he was taken home by God. While sad about missing him, we rejoice that his suffering has ended. God is with us each & everyday walking beside holding our hands to comfort. God is unchanging & always ever present when needed. We just need to slow down, take notice & talk with Him.
