Much of the country has woken to a very cold morning and the hint that winter might finally be here. This image was taken last year when the warmth of the day started to melt through the icy exterior. It is only then that the leaf comes back to life and is malleable. Experiences in life can leave us feeling rigid or unwilling to grow. However even in a period of winter within us, when all seems dormant the sense of the Spirit of God can be realised to warm our cold hearts.
