Thank you for this article. i would like to share a poem which shares this concept, entitled, "Surely, Spring Must Come" by Christi Pauline Long.....oh, seems so Everlastingly long, Dark winter chill. It comes and settles in, As if to last forever; Then lies there, Content to bury every hope Of ever seeing vital signs Of spring once more, Or of feeling the light and warmth Of the Sun radiate upon A warn out soul. Surely, spring must come... Surely it must! Ne'er through long span of years Has season failed to turn, Giving way yo better day; A little at a time, Changing days and days Of unrelenting gloom To light! Oh, that it might come boldly, Pushing out all evidence Of heavy hearted days; But no! 'Tis more apt to tease In a mean spirited way, To dish out hope, Than take it all away; But, surely spring must come, Surely it must! A little at a time. 'Til, at last, Glowing hour conquers dismal day, And each determined day Proves brighter than the last. And then... How soon shall we forget, The winter ever was!

Darla, what wonderful insights! My husband and I were married on Dec 21, the beginning of Winter Solstice, and he told me that was when his days began to be less dark and long and lonely. So I love any reminders of that. Thanks so much for sharing this. I know you've come through some dark times and know of what you speak. Great article!

As I struggle with depression (MDD) and other health issues, I am drawn to accounts such as yours for help. I can't thank you enough for putting your thoughts and feelings into words that could be shared. One other thing that fits with/into your article: Yea, though I walk through the Shadow of the Valley of Death I will fear no evil - for there could be no shadow if there was no Light. Thank you again.
