January thaw is deceptive.
The sun shines brightly;
Yet there’s a chill
That serves to remind me
It’s winter still.

January thaw wants to trick us
So we’ll come outside
To work and play;
Forgetting wintertide
Still has its way.

January thaw is here briefly;
Frost strengthens its hold,
Till everything
Is enveloped in cold,
Longing for spring.

January thaw renews our hope;
True warm weather comes,
Cold melts away;
People, creatures, blossoms
Greet the new day.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
