As I look back over the past couple of years, I am amazed at how frozen my heart had become. It's strange that while you are frozen you don't know it. You are not aware of it. Then suddenly something happens, or gradually, and you notice that your heart is thawing. Once it gets to a certain point, you can actually look back and recognize your frozen state. It's a rather disturbing but liberating experience.
I'm not fully thawed yet. So I know that a little further into warmer temperatures I'm going to look back and see just how much more frozen I was than I thought.
I am thankful for spring. I am thankful for the thaw. I am thankful for life.
