Winter Wonderland Walk

Come with me on a winter wonderland walk. You will want to put on a warm,heavy jacket,perhaps a hat and certainly some warm gloves.

All is still and quiet and all you hear as we walk along is the crunch of the snow beneath our feet.

A heavy layer of frost coats every branch,twig and even blade of dried grass.


Places that usually would not cause you to stop and take a second look,now have become gorgeous,frosty sights.


Let's stop and take a closer look at some of that frost.It is delicate and so pretty.


There is still a wintery fog in the air,but that only serves to turn this ordinary place into an extraordinary sight.


Before we head back to the warmth of the car,we stop one more time to take a close look at a milkweed pod coated with frost.


Closing Thought:
Psalm 147:16 says,
 He spreads the snow like wool
and scatters the frost like ashes
(Psalms 147:16 NIV)

God has sure scattered a lot of frost around and turned my world into a winter wonderland.
Thanks for taking a short walk with me.I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

  2. Ruth, you know how much I like snow, and hardly ever get any here in the deep South! I really enjoy your snowy pictures! If we had snow like that, I would probably stay out in it until I would get sick. Lovely!

  15. i can imagine me crunching the snow under my shoes. i wish for snow every day. thanks for sharing those views. you make my snow heart or my love for snow hang on just a bit longer .. maybe one day we will have snow again. we did have some flurries on monday. but that is never enough. not for a snow lover like me. they were talking on the news about our last big snow storm which was way back in 1996 when i was getting ready to graduate. i never thought i would... we stay out of school for weeks & even when to school on a saturday just to make it work out so we would graduate early june. too funny. have a nice weekend!!!
