Winter Rains

Advent – Season of Hope

Snow mixed with rain–bitter, biting, turning roadways into slippery messes where fenders clash in angry encounters.

Winter rain. I cannot comprehend its place in creation. Its dreary, dangerous, combination of sleet and ice browns an already dreary world barren of leaves and flowers. The winter rain brings no beauty, just brown mud and sinus headaches without the promise of spring flowers. It serves no purpose. There is no hope in its barren encounter.

God, why do you send rain in winter?

The Lord, the creator of the heavens . . . is God, the designer and maker of the earth . . . Not creating it to be a waste, but designing it be lived in.   Isaiah 45:18
