Piled high snow conceals the beginning of what we cannot yet see — seeds, bulbs, and leaves busily working behind the scenes, preparing to come alive and burst forth in spring.
Not knowing yet what lies ahead, time is endless — one long stretch of a simple moment. All the while winter whispers to us, “Stay present. Have faith. This too shall pass.”
When efforts feel stalled — like nothing is happening as we take baby step by baby step in the direction of our dreams — think of winter.
Gradually receding snow slides back the covers of change. Be patient. Stay true to course. The next thing we know, winter has become spring and all right before our eyes.
