|Faith not looking too thrilled about still having to wear her winter coat and mittens|
Every morning, I look at the temperature and every morning I am somewhat disheartened. This morning it was only 18 degrees (that's Fahrenheit for my Canadian family and friends!) Rob is still getting up to start the van and scrape off the windshield. I am still wearing my winter coat and we are still bundling Faith up to go outside. I know I shouldn't complain but I am really, really looking forward to warmer weather! Rumor has it, the temperature is supposed to reach 80 degrees this weekend - I will not believe it until I see it!

We will find that after making it through our dark season we will find the light that has been awaiting on the other side. All we have to do is keep pressing on, keep moving forward, keep praying and having others pray for us. Then the next time another tough season comes along, we will have an even stronger confidence that we will make it through this one too.
So it is with winter and spring. Soon winter will be behind us and there will be lots of bright, warm, sunny days ahead. Winter will eventually come around again but it is wonderful to know there is always the promise of spring!
