Bitter and Cold

Remember this.
When people choose to withdraw far from a fire,
the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold.
When people choose to withdraw far from light,
the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness.
This is also the case when people withdraw from God. ~Augustine

What a beautiful picture. I love the focus on icicles.
And what a beautiful quote. I always remind myself how much God detests lukewarmness.
Thankful that we can always turn back to the light and come home to Him again.
