I had to smile at this tweet from Jen Wilkin, because I feel the same way.
Then I just read this morning that the third Monday in January is said by some to be the most depressing day of the year, due to debt from Christmas spending hitting, having already failed at our New Year’s resolution, less daylight, more cold, etc. On the other hand, one article called that pseudoscience and another said it was made up by a travel agent trying to drum up bookings to vacation climes. I wouldn’t doubt it. 🙂
Winter is not my favorite season, and a few years ago I wrote Help For the Winter Blues, ideas of other things to focus on or do, quotes, poems, etc. Last year I reflected on Finding Beauty in Bleakness – that’s one aspect of winter I have the most trouble with, and it helped to reflect that God has purposes for even that.
So I won’t rewrite those this year, but I’ll share some other day-brightening thoughts found recently for coping with winter.
Doesn’t that just fit?!
I don’t know if that works, but I sure wish I had some bubble solution to try it out!
