December 1 has arrived. With it come all kinds of preparations for Christmas,and Yes,I will choose to call it Christmas with a capital 'C',because it is the birth of Christ which we celebrate.
I realized that the last couple of posts have been fairly dull coloured so today I give you some colour.
Looking out of my back door one morning,this is what greeted me.I love those gorgeous sunrises. This is what makes getting up early so worth it.
Maybe not that much colour,but beauty just the same. Trees covered in hoarfrost get my attention every time.
On that same frosty afternoon,I saw these shadows cast by the poplar trees.
Back on my yard. From my kitchen window I can see the birds. The next two pictures are taken through the window.
The female Hairy Woodpecker stopped for a moment on her way up the tree,so I could get this picture.
Last,but certainly not least is the Blue Jay.He is sitting on the same tree as the woodpecker was on.
You can see that both pictures were taken on the same day. It was snowing and that made for some great background effects.
Thought for Today:
God's presence with us is one of the greatest presents to us.
