Blog Pictures | acobox.comI know I’ve been quiet lately.  It’s that time of year.  My heart feels blanketed and still, like earth covered in snow.  All the big holidays and events are behind us.  The last of January and most of February are the year’s quietest time for me.

I finally took my Christmas decorations down yesterday, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord.  The last we see of Him as a little babe.  A darker time is on the horizon… a deep violet dusk.

This month is going to be quite busy where worldly activities are concerned.  But at the end of the day, when I’m home alone, I just want to rest, to lie beneath my snow-like blanket, to watch Heaven pass serenely overhead, and to feel the pulse of my Lord’s heart.
