It´s that time of the year again....
Our living room transformed in a cozy home with all our white candles from Ikea
The weather´s getting colder and I´m getting out all my long-sleeves, boots, "warmy-wormies" as my hubby would call it. We had a mini shopping spree on Saturday at Ikea, Hofmeister and Aldi all on one day. There were so many little things on the to-get list that we decided to attack it all at one go.
We normally bring the laptop from the study room to the living room whenever we want to watch a DVD. Love the feel of candles, especially when its all cold and windy outside and one can snuggle under a warm blanket on the sofa while being transported to a fantasy world of "happy ever afters".
I cherish these homely cuddly moments but still struggle with the long dark days when the sun barely peeks out of the clouds and its all gloomy and wet.
Its times like these that I have to remind myself that God created both summer and winter. That there´s a time and season for every activity under the sun. (Ecc. 3:1) That there´s beauty in cycles and seasons even if one generally prefers one to the other.
Help me find joy in long nights, cold weather and little sun Lord.
