What to Do In Winter

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We have a season full of sledding, skiing, skating, and cozy cups of hot chocolate to look forward to. There are holidays and presents and evenings spent watching the same 25 movies we always watch this time of year. The snow glistens in the trees and the frost makes everything look glassy and delicate.

It’s beautiful. Until it isn’t. Cars drive over the fresh snow, and boots turn up mud, turning everything instead into brown sludge. Tensions rise over cleaning the house for company, and everyone seems to be on edge without the ability to get some space outdoors. And, some of us live in climates where we don’t even get to enjoy the snowy days of winter! It’s just unending grey and rain… Or, if there is snow, it’s more of a reason for panic than wonder because the infrastructure of our city isn’t prepared to handle such low temperatures.

Winter is a season of beauty and scarcity. It’s a time of joy and anticipation, yet also of melancholy and just wanting it to be warm again, dangit. The tensions of this season sometimes mimic the tensions we feel living in the world. We notice all of the goodness and the brokenness of the world around us while longing for a Kingdom that is to come.

As we lean into this winter of our lives, let’s pray to the God who created all seasons and has something to teach us through them all.

“As the rain and the snow

   come down from heaven,

and do not return to it

    without watering the earth

and making it bud and flourish,

    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

so is my word that goes out from my mouth:

    It will not return to me empty,

but will accomplish what I desire

    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:10-11).

A Prayer for Winter

Lord of ice and evergreens, just as nature continues its work beneath a blanket of snow, work your way beneath the surface of my life. Use this season to prepare me for flourishing. Help me find new ways to celebrate this season, and enjoy the activities it offers. Refining Fire, protect those who face the cold without shelter, and deliver us all from winter storms. Show me how to spread the warmth of your love to all I encounter. Amen.
