Each season of life affords blessings but none so beautiful as the winter ....you must be strong to weather the frost and crunch and sting of the crystal winds. God has strengthened us for the intensity of this brilliant time of life by allowing us to stumble through spring, stroll through summer, and run into fall. Finally, as the last season approaches we realize the value of savoring each step. Perhaps that is why we age and slow down naturally ...to not only stop us from a fall but to infiltrate our senses with a stinging sensation of finality.We can apply our winter faith as we trust God with failing vision, muscles that are weakening, brain function that at times seems to be fluttering just as our heart beat flutters at times. We put our lives back into the hands of our creator, our Great Physician, to keep us alive until He brings us home. Let us praise God for every day of our lives, especially the last glorious ones.

We ought to praise God. He is worthy to be praised. Nice one

I liked your different ideas. Perhaps you could have expanded more on the subject. Well done on what you wrote:)
Mary McLeary07/13/09
This is beautiful. Since it is so concise, could you put in poetry form? I loved it.

Short, sweet, truth, and to the point. I like that.

I ran across your brick in the wrong spot. Sorry to see this comment is the only one so far, but that's probably why. It is nearly impossible to read through all the entries, so people have a tendancy to read the ones with hints and bricks.

You have an excellent way with words, but this could use a couple paragraph breaks and a little tweaking.

Also it would be nice to see each thought expanded, rather than just a line or two. Don't take this to the bank; I'm a beginner.

What great insight you have.
Keep these coming.

Blessings,
Patty
