Pieces of Heaven

Winter in my Heart

Outside my window, it is snowing again. The green patches that had previously began to grow and the tulips which had begun to sprout are now covered with a white film.
Often, the weather reflects my mood, and it does so again today.
I feel bleak, lifeless and dark.
Something happened this week (and I will spare you the details as I don't want to risk going into an adolescent rant) that really shattered the way I see things- and I really don't think there's anything that can be done about it, other than to pray, and unite it to Christ carrying His cross.
I suppose that it is appropriate that this happened during Lent. I feel lost, and for so long I feel like I've been searching for Him, but I cannot find Him...except in the gentleness of my husband, for which I am grateful.
Lord, increase my faith- make me to have eyes for You alone. Help me to be one after Your own Heart, just as the psalmist was.
