Here we are, just a third of the way through January. It is even chilly in Phoenix! But, you know what? We are already through the shortest day here in the northern hemisphere. I am feeling renewed, and my students are just beginning their 2nd semesters. i put away the Christmas decorations. So some of the sparkle is missing. But this weekend, perhaps, I will light some candles in the evening to give the room some magical glow.
After all, there is reason for optimism. Why? God gives us a new day and renewed hearts each day. We may sometimes feel that ~
But inside it is warm. I made some chicken stew last night, and it warmed our bellies and our hearts. I hope that you are well this day ~ and that the flu is far away. If not, have some tea and burrow under those quilts. Hugs to you~
