Winter Solstice

22 12 2011

It’s the Winter solstice.  The shortest day of the year.  The longest night.  The beginning of Winter.

The days now start getting longer.

Spring is only 89 days away.

Santa gets here in 3 days.

Christmas brings an extra day or two off from work.

Added bonus: It is unseasonably warm and green here in the Northern Hemisphere on the St. Lawrence River.  (Did I mention Spring is coming?)

Time to set goals!  What are yours for the next year? Five years? Ten years?

Thanks Katie–got the pic from a free wallpaper site and loved it, so not sure if it’s infrared but the colors are brilliant.

Great picture! Great thoughts too. The ancients set massive bonfires on the solstice to combat the darkness of winter. May our lights burn bright for Christ for the same reason.
