Winter Berry


I have always loved the name Winter Berry.  
  I thought what a beautiful name for a blog it would make.

So, for now I have changed my blog name to Winter Berry.
I love the newness it brings to my blog.
It's okay to change really, it is.
I'm trying to convince myself here.  LOL 😉

The web address will stay the same. ( Simply Farmhouse)

Early







   





Quietness fills my early morning. The whiteness of clouds called dew kisses the grass.
Sweet praises begin to ring out from many birds who have their little chest 
puffed out worshiping their Creator.

Just me resting in the midst of this beautiful quiet, cool morning.
Gently swaying in the porch swing with puffy pillows cozily surrounding me.
My bare-feet resting on a soft area rug while I slip on hot cocoa.

This day, this beautiful, quite morning is before me.
The wonder of it all and the beauty is in the stillness.
A wonderful hush is all around; here is where I find my peace.
Here is where I breathe deep.

Summer mornings quickly pass by, and then slowly fade away.
Fall gently replaces summer with the coolness of each new morning.
These mornings on the porch will be a moment in time.
Fall days of brilliant colors push their way through. While winter
awaits in the balance for his turn, to kiss the ground with snow.
A time to slow down and be still in Him.

These are the moments in time; simply take time to see the wonder. 

No matter our age we anticipate the next season of our lives....
Are we ready to rush into the next season? 
I should think not.

When we rush to the next season of our lives,
we will miss out on what God has for us this season.
Live life in the moment for this moment is all you have.

In this moment, in this season allow God to work in your life, guide and teach you.
He wants to prepare you with strength for what may come.

Those new seasons will come, and when they do
you will be ready to embrace whatever they may bring to you.

Autumn
Winter 
Spring
Summer
These seasons are what a symphony ought to be:
four perfect movements in harmony with each other;
each season in Him prepares each of us for the next.
