Winter Bucket List 2020

The Creek @ Prairie State Park in Winter

Autumn is over and winter solstice occurred on Monday. Did you happen to catch the conjoining of Saturn and Jupiter (a.k.a "the Christmas star") Monday night? It was amazing!

In this post I am going to share a list of things that I'd like to experience and accomplish over the course of the 2020-21 winter season. I probably won't get to all of them, but just having the list will help me to focus on the season and, perhaps, enjoy it a little more. Won't you join me as I read through the list?

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).
