Frosty breath

Crisp blue skies

The hush of winter lullabyes 

Drawing down to warmer protective interiors

Where Adonai reigns supreme

The season of rest

His ruling breath

O coat my soul

With Your fire

Color this inner chamber

With Your desire

Plant the permanent flowers of peace

That no earthly changes can cease

Shelter me in Your radiant will

And teach me the wisdom

Of Peace, be still.

 Isaiah 55:8-13

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways,” says Adonai. “As high as the sky is above the earth are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For just as rain and snow fall from the sky and do not return there, but water the earth, causing it to bud and produce, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so is My Word that goes out from My mouth – it will not return to Me unfulfilled; but it will accomplish what I intend, and cause to succeed what I sent it to do.”

Yes, you will go out with joy, you will be led forth in peace. As you come, the mountains and hills will burst into song, and all the trees in the countryside will clap their hands. Cypresses will grow in place of thorns, Myrtle will grow instead of briars. This will bring fame to Adonai as an eternal sign, imperishable sign.  

Job 37:5-7;9-13

God thunders wonderfully with His voice, He does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth!’ – likewise to the light rain, also to the downpour. He brings all human activity to a stop, so that everyone He has made can know it. 

Out of its chamber comes the storm, with cold out of the north. By the breath of God, ice is given and wide waters freeze over. He weighs the clouds down with moisture, and they flash forth His lightning. He, by His plans, turns them around, so they do what He commands them anywhere on earth; He brings them forth on the earth sometimes to punish, sometimes to express His grace.  

✡ May the season of rest and shalom be richly poured out into you by the power of Yeshua the Messiah, and for His namesake! ✡

    how easy it is to lose track of a friend. Good to connect again. These pictures are beautiful. BUT here in the San Fernando Valley where we are average 100 F, it is a bit hard to relate to them right now…

      I can relate… I’m in Albuquerque NM, and was at the time I wrote this… my back patio reads about 104°! Clouds turn into mountains all around us and seem to taunt us… though I know it’s likely the Hand of Lord over us… those clouds have been doing very nasty things to who they have hovered directly over.
      Fire season for you guys…I shall pray for you and those around you. There are some people…I know I’m going to recognize right away when Yeshua had come to scoop all of His chick’s into one basket! You and yours will be among them.
      Hazak, hazak, v’nit’chazek!
      Be strong, be strong, and let us be strengthened! (This is found at the end of the book of Numbers in the Bible I have. I find it to be very relevant for us today!) Shalom, may Yeshua be a constant still small voice… from which all might and strength get its breath!
