If the cold of winter is getting to you, maybe the following quote from G.K. Chesterton will bring a little spring to your day.
As the Grandpa to three little ones, I smiled as I pictured God in this way:
"Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that he has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we."
- G.K. Chesterton
It's good to stand in amazement of God's greatness, majesty, holiness and power. And to think that this same God loves us and pours out his mercy upon us! As Romans 11:33 says, "Oh, how great are God's riches and wisdom and knowledge! It is impossible for us to understand his decisions and his ways!"
For people of faith, to stand in awe of God is to give him glory. All glory to him forever!
