Snow flakes, dead leaves, and cold weather

I know many of you do not like cold weather or the decaying of live plants but that is truly what is happening. I personally love to see snow falling from the sky. The smell and sight of it brings memories like non-other. Snow makes me think back to the days of being a child and playing in it for countless hours. It also brings back the memories of Holidays with my family. I remember back to the times when my Grandma Duesler and my Aunt Linda would dress up as clowns during our Christmas party at my Grandpa and Grandma Duesler's house. One more thing I think about during winter is how everything seems to die or just lie dormant till the renewing of life in spring. That may be why winter is my favorite time of year. I like to know that though everything was alive in the world that now it is gone till a renewing of life. Pretty much, laying down it's life to take on new life the following spring. This is so representative to me seeing as how that is what we do as Christians. Really I'm just blogging to say I love winter no matter if it's cold, it's the memories that bring back to life in winter. Also, Ruthann Malsch is amazing.
