The current temperature in Carlisle, PA is 37 degrees.
The reflection off the Farberware coffee pot displays the backdrop from the window of ground covered in a veil of shimmering jeweled frost.
Most of our trees have shed their coat of many colors and the bare tree standing tall in the midst of the crisp morning is a reminder to me of the beauty of courage.
A courageous heart stands tall - unwilling to cower in the face of obstacles.
As I see it, courage refuses to be a cheap imitation...it is clothed in raw vulnerability and honest humility.
As the sun emerges in all its glory, the Earth is warmed and the frost is slowly disappearing - yet the tree remains unwavering in strength.
