Cold & Harsh

Bright & Silent


Its breath, biting & its fingers, icy

Its light, blinding & its silence, deafening

Each element offering

An uncomfortable vulnerability,

A nakedness,

An exposure to the elements.

As empty, cold & naked as winter is,

Like exposure to the sun,

It’s in the exposure to God’s great love we are

Found & Washed

Seen & Heard

And similar to His love

The cold awakens & refreshes the senses, like a splash of cold water to the face

The harsh causes discomfort & urges change

The bright unhindered light exposes what is hidden, like the sun through the leafless trees

The silence forces space to think, hear & be heard

Winter is where

God’s strong love

Meets weakness & vulnerability

To cause significant change

& deep healing

Do not resist exposure

Rather, embrace it
