Dormant Beauty

I went for another wintry walk today and was struck, once again, by the beauty of the "dead of winter." It is encouraging to me to see that God has a purpose for all of his creation- even if it is simply to be beautiful- even when it's not producing fruit. If a tree and vine can still be beautiful while patiently waiting out the cold of winter, it gives me hope that, even while waiting for whatever God calls me to next, I can still somehow be used to bring Him glory.

  1. Couldn't be better said . . . from one who also appreciates the created beauty in the freeze frame shots of the "dead of winter".
