In the Midst of Winter

Lord, In the midst of Winter,
when the days are cold and wind can pierce
remind us of the warmth of your love.

reach out to us with the power of your resurrection so that we may feel the
warmth of your love and see your light that alone can take away the darkness
of our soul. Amen
