This is the cuddly time of year! The cold and gray and general misery of January always makes me want to cuddle in a soft blanket with a hot drink and either read a good book or watch a good movie. This is the time of year for steam rising off the mug and for furry slippers. Often the dog will bury himself under my blanket and nap while I read or watch TV. This is the time of year for the crackle of logs in the fireplace and for soup for supper.
Gracious Lord, thank you for the comfort of warmth in the cold of winter. Thank you for your love, which warms all of my life. Amen.
