Winter is here again, O Lord*

Winter and Summer, glorify the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Glorify the Lord, O chill and cold,
drops of dew and flakes of snow;

Frost and cold, ice and sleet, glorify the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Morning Canticle

Here's a view from my deck this morning...

Same trees just last month...

* And here's Journey singing Wheel in the Sky in August, 1980. The next month they would do the same set, same way just outside of Nuernburg, (then West) Germany - the last concert I would attend before ending my Army active duty and coming back to the USA...

The best music video for the changing seasons:

...and everything in time,
and under heaven finally falls asleep
wrapped in blankets white,
all creation shivers underneath
and still i notice you,
when branches crack and in my breath on frosted grass
even now in death,
you open doors for life to enter
you are winter

and everything that's new,
has bravely surfaced
teaching us to breathe
what was frozen through,
is newly purposed
turning all things green,
so it is with you
and how you make me new,
with every seasons change
and so it will be,
as you are re-creating me
summer, autumn, winter, spring"

Thanks, rob roy, I enjoyed that video in the quiet time this Sunday Morning. It was a blessing, and may many blessings come your way in return.

whoa... I think I've never heard that song before and I tend to think of myself as being pretty well-versed in rock and roll. Thanks for your help on my blog the other day with your helpful comment TLF+ and the Lord bless you and your family.
