      It was a wonderful snowy day. You could hear that wind whistling, and
      the lone, spindly tree just oustside the living room window was being
      seriously blown about. All the leaves were gone from this tree except a
      single tiny reddish-brown one connected near the top. It clung
      tenaciously as the wind whipped it about.

      The little leaf was enduring the hardship of a mountain winter. Spring
      would soon arrive and the tree would bud and fill with new leaves. It
      looked like the little leaf would make it. It would survive and enjoy
      the new spring and lazy summer before autumn and another winter would
      come.

      Winter storms come into all of our lives, even when it�s not winter.  If
      you haven�t experienced one, you surely will. Sometimes our personal
      winters cause us to abandon or turn our backs on whatever, or whomever,
      we are connected .  

      When we suffer the pain of divorce, job loss, miscarriage, or any number
      of things that come our way in life�s journey, there are times when we
      don�t feel like hanging on.  It simply seems too hard.

      In the Bible, book of John,  Jesus tells us He is the vine (tree) and we
      are branches. If we stay connected to the tree, we can weather any
      storm. That�s a hope we can hold onto, and a promise we can claim. That
      is good news!
