I have added the words “the winter of the heart”.
(I have embroidered some of the words since this photo was taken.)
I am beginning to understand that there are
seasons to the world and seasons within our soul.
Like the water from the ocean and how the tide pulls the water out and back again.
Once, while visiting Cape Cod years ago and the children were small I marveled
at how the water would become so shallow that you could walk for almost a mile
out. Little children and adults a like would walk out as if it was a shallow pond.
But, by evening time the water would rise and it would be impossible to do that.
Perhaps there are times in our lives that become “open doors” or “gateways” for
something new…perhaps a positive change.
Maybe a change of heart….
