Happy New Year

2011 is almost history,and what a year it has been.
I am sure that each of us has seen our share of trials and also blessings.
As I stand poised at the threshold of the new year,I wait on God to show me the way.

THis was the scene in my area yesterday.Finally we for some beautiful snow.
I spent a delightful time with my son,photographing all this beauty.
I am sure you will be seeing more of those pictures in days to come.

Since I have not been posting for a little while I just wanted to take the time to wish all of you a Wonderful New Year,rich in love and peace.

Beautiful! We don't have snow here yet, but I am sure it is coming before Spring. ;) All the best for 2012.

Well, we have been catapulted into a new year that already has gathered super-sonic speed and is pelting along towards next Christmas just a breath away. God willing, we will get there hale and hearty!

Your snow pics are delectable dear Ruth, while we are sweltering in 100+F temperatures and at 6a.m. my blinds are drawn against the heat.

I do hope 2012 sees you as healthy, happy and creative as ever. ove and hugs . . . Arija

Snow -- so beautiful, but for me, snow to look at and not experience. It is going to be 82 degrees here on Monday, so they say, and we're not in Australia. Have a truly blessed New Year.

Tammy said...

I'm beginning to wonder if we are going to see any snow this year here in NY...nice to see yours :)

Happy New Year!

Hi Ruth!
Just wanted to stop by to let you know what an encouragement your positive attitude is to me as we both travel this journey of widowhood. I am so glad I found you through Ferree's website!

It is a painful road at times, but there are so many good things to look forward to and so much beauty to enjoy and you capture it so exquisitely! Thank you for sharing your gift with us. Your header is amazing! I will be sure to visit again.
Hugs and Happy New year!

Thanks for thinking of me, Ruth! My finances got so tight that I couldn't get out anywhere to take pics but the house and the office, and I got a little bored with the 365 project. I have taken a few photos lately that I thought I'd post. I'm still dreaming of my dslr (lol), but that dream is a little further down the road. Other than that I'm doing well. I was very sick New Year's Eve, but feeling better today.

I love your photos. They are just beautiful!!! Keep in touch, and have a Happy New Year! Cheryl

Dianne ... Walking In His Grace said...

Hi Ruth, It is so nice that you can go out taking photos with your son. It is so nice also to be able to capture fresh falling snow. What a beautiful composition. I do enjoy your blog and all you share.
I came by also to wish and pray you have a Blessed New Year filled with Peace, Love, Joy, Good Health and many, many more Blessings.
Hugs, Dianne :)
