The secret of your own heart you can never know;
but you can know Him who knows its secret.

Full Wolf Moon

This lovely moon was in my backyard yesterday afternoon.

Native Americans used to refer to January's full moon as the Full Wolf Moon. Amid the frigid temperatures and snow of January, wolves would howl with hunger outside their villages. I'm sure this must have been a time of worry and fear.

Sometimes the wolves are howling outside around us. We wonder if we can face what is right outside our door. We fret.

"The next moment is as much beyond our grasp, and as much in God's care, as that a hundred years away. Care for the next minute is just as foolish as care for a day in the next thousand years. In neither can we do anything, in both God is doing everything." -C.S. Lewis
