Contentment in the Snow
Since I made that Lenten resolution on Ash Wednesday to stop complaining about the snow and make the most of the extra solitude that snow offers, I have been remarkably more content. There is no more anxiety about trying to get away from these temperatures and this drifting. Just a willingness to take what comes and let it make me more aware of God's presence and love.
That doesn't mean that I won't continue to find God, also, in pictures like these glorious orchids. I took this picture several years ago at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh.
