Joy in the Icy Cold

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
The ice sculpture created by 
Mother Nature

must be open to it!

 It's so very cold
Yes, so very, very cold
my fingers are numb

Numb are my fingers
But joyful is the knowledge
That the heart is ever warmer.


Thanks be to God!!!


Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!!

  6. Yes dear Cathy, your warm heart would definitely warm that amazing ice sculpture!

  7. There is joy to be found in the cold of winter, Cathy, and you expressed it well!

  8. In the sparkle of sun on the snow' the violet shadows ... in the cardinal flashing by... in the ringed and growing icicles ...

  9. Warm hearts outweigh frigid fingers!
