Judith Ashley is the author of The Sacred Women's Circle series, romantic fiction that honors spiritual traditions that nurture the soul.
The change of the seasons is marked this time of the year. Here’s my view in mid-January. As you can see my world was encased in 12 – 15 inches of snow and ice. Obviously we did weather that series of storms that had me housebound for nine days in a row!
But as we all know, time passes and The Wheel of the Year turns. Even though as I write this post with less than a week left in February, the nights are still in the low 30’s or high 20’s. I wake up to fog and we’ve even had a couple of hail storms. I bundle up to keep warm because the damp cold chills me to the bone especially when accompanied by the East Winds from the Columbia River Gorge.
What I am always in awe of is captured in these pictures. Cold and at times freezing nights, less than a month since being covered by a foot or more of snow and ice and yet…
The urge, the need to grow, to seek the light of the sun is strong. Strong enough that when we see the green of new growth push through and we know for a certainty that Spring is almost here there is a lightness, a gladdening of the spirit that shines through..
What is your favorite herald of Spring?
