by Dr. Don Kuehle

The snow was coming down, covering everything like a heavy blanket.

Through the snow, I saw the mailman making his appointed rounds. As I opened the mailbox, what should I find? Several seed catalogues! What are seed catalogues doing in my mailbox in the middle of winter? This must be a sign from God, I thought! A sign of hope in the midst of the winter
