Gracious God, the leaves have fallen, the air has become cold, and bare trees now seem to open the sky. Remind me that this is a time to slow down in order to be attentive to the stark stillness winter brings. Help me breathe deeply the frigid air and know myself to be held in the warmth of your love. When the sun is high, let me look up and be bathed in your gift of winter's gold. When the moon lights up the night, let me look up and drink in your gift of snowy calm. I ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.
I also want to remind you that this month’s Daily Muse is focused on the role of angels in our lives. Take a minute or two a day to click on the Daily Muse Calendar and see what angel might be popping up in your life today! You might be surprised!
