The last few weeks have brought a return of winter weather to Southern Ontario, and to WCS. The recent snowfall was my first experience with winter weather in many years, as Hong Kong does not get winter quite like we do! For our students, the fresh snow was like a toy that hasn’t been played with in awhile. They were so excited to play with it again and they had a blast collaborating with their classmates rolling giant snowballs, making forts, and playing in the snow. It has melted since, but I’m sure we’ll get more snow soon.
Perhaps we don’t look forward to it quite as much, but the winter season is a reminder of God’s faithfulness. Genesis 8:22 says “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
We praise God for each changing season because it reminds us of His continual faithfulness, day after day, week after week, and season after season. We serve a God who fulfills His promises, and this is a great blessing, even on those chilly winter mornings.
