Winter Blessing Prayer
Blessed are you, winter, dark season of waiting, you affirm the dark seasons of our lives forecasting the weather of waiting in hope.
Blessed are you, winter, frozen and cold on the outside, within your silent, nurturing womb you warmly welcome all that longs for renewal.
Blessed are you, winter, you teach us valuable lessons about waiting in darkness with hope and trust.
Blessed are you, winter, when your tiny snowflakes flurry through the air, you awaken our sleeping souls.
Blessed are you, winter, with your wild and varied moods, so intent on being yourself, you refuse to be a people-pleaser.
Blessed are you, winter, your inconsistent moods often challenge Spring's arrival, yet how gracefully you step aside when her time has come.
