I love sparkling frosty mornings. They remind me of a fairy’s dream.
The other day, I woke up to a white wonderland in my front yard. Immediately, I went out and took pictures. It was breathtaking. But as I was snapping away, a question came to me, and the more I thought about it, a truth was revealed.
What causes the frost?
Hoarfrosts come after a dark night that’s filled with heavy fog. Everything is cold and silent. Everything gets encased in a frozen layer of unyielding ice. It’s cold. It’s quiet. It’s lonely. It is a time of silent despair…
Then the morning comes. Sparkling sunshine reflects off the frozen, captured fog. It’s so beautiful. It takes your breath. The very thing that seemed so horrible in the dark is now an object of beauty. A trophy of sorts.
What are hoarfrosts?
If you’re facing a dark, cold night. If the fog is so thick that you feel confused. If your heart feels like it’s encased in ice… Then take a deep breath. Smile. And know that your glorious morning is on its way, and when it arrives—it’s going to be SPECTACULAR!!
You’re going to make it. Not only that—you’re going to SHINE!!
