winter is isolating in the Upper Peninsula
not just because of the cold, but because the snow can limit travel
(today it is almost waist deep in places)
towns are sometimes few and far between
which means people are also.
as isolating as it can be in the winter
there is one sure thing about the UP ...
... friendships run deeper than the snow
and faith runs deeper than that.
i am comforted by the belief that i am not alone and that i will never be forsaken. by the hope of tomorrow and the knowledge that i am forgiven, and that this life is only a stepping stone to a life beyond my wildest dreams.
