Where did 2013 go? It seems like it was just January 1 and now we are in the last month of the year.
Christmas is right around the corner.
In my part of the country when we think Christmas not only do we celebrate the birth of the Saviour,but we also think snow.This year we have not had very much snow yet,so I went back into the archives and dug up some snow pictures.
As I said these are all from last winter,but they are still as pretty today as then.
When a heavy layer of hoarfrost covers the trees with a backdrop of blue sky,I smile and grab my cameras.I love scenes like this.
While driving down the country roads I am always on the lookout for beautiful snow sculptures.
Just look at the details in this small patch of wind blown snow.One can almost imagine high mountains in this scene,even though the highest point was likely not much more than a few inches tall.
Of course,as I have said before,I don't even need to leave my house to see beauty.This is one of the many frost designs on some of my windows.Overnight,God has been busy designing these pretties for me to enjoy.
Pardon the dirty window,it is winter,after all.I can't clean windows in winter.That's my story and I'm sticking to it.LOL
Stepping outside,I see the ring of frost around the heated birdbath.Yes,it is supposed to be for the birds,but I also benefit from the added beauty of the frost.
This is the kind of scene I just never get tired of seeing.Evergreen boughs laden with snow.I am so thankful to have evergreens along both sides of my yard.
Dear God,You promised that You would forgive our sins and wash us as clean as the new-fallen snow.(Isaiah 1:18) Wash me now,Lord! Restore me!
