Winter Solstice

Winter solstice: the longest nights, the shortest days.
The world holds still for a moment before new light comes and fresh life grows.
Time to reflect, time to connect.

Time to enjoy the comfort of a warm home.
Time to inhale quite weekend mornings.
Time to create little oasis’s of peace and family intimacy.

Time to rejoice at the many never ending cycles of nature who promise the repeating return of that what is gone.
Time to strengthen our souls by God’s mercy and wisdom shown in His creation everywhere: the inhaling and exhaling, the warmth and the cold, the north and the south, the day and the night, the living and the death…

Time to remember that all is good, subhanallah,
despite all difficulties that life sometimes brings.
Have a happy Winter!

  1. Liebe Itto,
    ich danke dir für diese schönen Worten, für die Dankbarkeit in allem, für das “nie soll aufhören Sommer und Winter…. Tag und Nacht….”; ich danke dir aber auch für diese wunderbaren Bilder, die du immer wieder zeigst, für die Einfachheit, die zugleich Harmonie ausdrückt.
    Dir und Deinen Lieben wünsche ich eine gute Zeit
    In herzlicher Verbundenheit

  2. Happy Winter Itto. Your words and photos are a beautiful tribute for what is to come inshaAllah.May you and your family be blessed in 2014.

  3. Salam alaykoum dear Itto
    Je viens souvent m’inspirer de ta page lecture pour y découvrir de nouveaux titres.
    Aujourd’hui, à mon tour, je te suggère de lire “I Shall Not Hate : A Gaza Doctor’s Journey” of Izzeldin Abuelaish. C’est un magnifique livre de paix et je pense que tu aimerais beaucoup le lire incha Allah.
    Prends soin de toi et tes proches, qu’Allah vous bénisse.
    A french sister fiLlah
