Always Winter...

Any guesses where the title comes from, and what the second half of the saying is?

This has been an amazingly cold and snowy winter. The average winter snowfall is about 70" for our area. The last data I could find shows the total at 146.3". More than double. 

For the first half of the winter, I was just too busy to enjoy it. And then I wasn't quite as busy, but I still didn't take the time to go out in it. I hate being cold, and can easily just hide in the house.

But over the last month I've gone out in the winter wonderland several times. We have some very nice county parks nearby with skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. Tonight, after supper, I was alone in the park. Alone with the trees and the snow.

Someone had undoubtedly been there before me--I could easily see the tracks and had no trouble staying on the path.

I guess life is like that, too. I'm not really sure what is around the bend, or what the scenery will be like. But there is a path. And if I remember to pay attention, I'm sure the scenery will be beautiful.

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. -- Isaiah 30:21
