10 Things You Can do Outside with Your Family Even in Cold Weather

When the cold weather hits, it’s tempting to stay inside our cozy houses and not be out in the fresh air, but contrary to what you might think, there are actually a lot of activities that you can do, special to winter. Even through the winter months, it’s important to get some fresh air and appreciate how God has created the seasons, each with their unique beauty. I am especially reminded of something my pastor back home likes to say about the winter season: “As I look out my window and see the birds in the snow, I bring to mind Isaiah 1:18: ‘Though your sins are like scarlet; they shall be as white as snow.’” Let’s be open to what the Lord may be teaching us through this season of winter.

1. Go for a walk

I’ll be the first to say I don’t like cold weather, but there really is a special beauty to nature during winter. The air is fresher and crisper and it doesn’t take long to warm up when you are on a vigorous walk. Whether you live in a city or the country, chances are that you won’t regret getting outside, getting some exercise, and enjoying God’s Creation.
