Ponder: Deciduous trees drop their leaves and bear no fruit in the winter. But evergreens keep their green no matter what the season brings. In what ways are you deciduous? Evergreen?
Pray: Holy God, Remind us that dormant does not mean lifeless but preparatory. We trust you are preparing us for new leaves and new life in due time. Give us strength to wait for the spring! And thank you for the evergreens around us that offer witness to your vitality and give us hope. Amen.
