THEN IT IS WINTER
Winter Is Here!

You know, time has a way of moving quickly and
catching you unaware of the passing years.
It seems just yesterday that I was a young girl, just
married and embarking on my new life with my husband.
And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago and I
wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived
them all...And I have glimpses of how it was back then
and of all my hopes and dreams...
But, here it is...the winter of my life and it catches me
by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the
years go and where did my babies go? And where
did my youth go?
I remember well...seeing older people through the years
and thinking that those older people were years away
from me and that winter was so far off that I could
not phathom it or imagine fully what it would be like...
But, here it is...husband retired yesterday and he's
really getting gray...he moves slower and I see an older
man now. He's in much better shape than me...
but, I see the great change...
Not the one I married who was dark and young
and strong...but, like me, his age is beginning to show
and we are now those older folks that we used to
see and never thought we'd be.
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a
real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a
treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on
my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so, now I enter into this new season of my life
unprepared for all the aches and pains and the
loss of strength and ability to go and do things.
But, at least I know, that though the winter has come,
and I'm not sure how long it will last...This I know, that
when it's over...I will enjoy the Spring in the arms of my
loving Father...and wait for my loved ones to come
when their winter is over too...
So, if your not in your winter yet...let me remind you,
that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you
would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly!
For remember that scripture?...our life is but a vapor,
it vanisheth away...So, do what you can today, because you
can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!
You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of
your life...so, live for the Lord today and say all the things
that you want your loved ones to remember...
Thank You, Jesus!
