Need Help from Christian Moms

It's my turn to do the bulletin board at Church. It'll be for the entire Winter Season, so nothing dedicated to a specific Holiday.... I need any catch phrases, quotes, or short scripture that I can use in relation to the Winter theme. Please help with whatever you can think of. I've tried Googling every version of this and haven't come up with anything good.

  • The winter prepares the earth for the spring, so do afflictions sanctified prepare the soul for glory.
    —Richard Sibbes

    Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle … a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream. ~ Barbara Winkler

  • How about -

    If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. (Anne Bradstreet)

    In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer. (Albert Camus)

    In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy. (William Blake)

    No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn. (Hal Borland)

    Those are in addition to the scripture ones that have been mentioned - lol Ecclesiastes was my first thought, but I saw it was already shared :-)

  • Everything must die to be born again, like to corn planted in the ground. The seed must die before new corn can grow.
    It was our topic in church yesterday.

  • Perhaps if it is setup for the first of the year to focus upon "New Beginnings for 2009". Focus upon "Daily Bible Reading" --"Church Attendance"--"Prayer Life or Prayer Journal". Things that we all want to strive and do better on each year..
