You set the boundaries of the earth, and you made both summer and winter. Psalm 70:17
What a wonderful reminder that our Good Shepherd is also the Creator! He made both the warm, long days of summer as well as the cold, shorter days of winter. He is in the sun and the snow, the wind and the rain, and no matter the season, He adores the sheep of His pasture.
May you enjoy the warmth of the Son this month!

Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain. Psalm 30:7a
