Beauty All Around

The sky is a constantly changing show.A show which too many people fail to take note of.


I stepped out of my house recently,looked up and this is what greeted me.It almost looked like a huge seashell.


Easy mornings can be spectacular.This was a sunrise recently.The colors were breathtaking.


A little later in the day,the bright colors had faded,but this soft scene was peaceful and still lovely.

I had been waiting for snow and finally it came.The branches were carrying a heavy load of snow.
I took this,using a flash.


I love the lacy look of snow covered trees.This is right on my yard. Since I took this picture,we have had quite a bit more snow,so the beauty just increases.

All the photos in this post were taken with my iPhone.


Closing Thought:
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.
Colossians 3:15

You did a wonderful job of capturing the beauty of both the sky and the snow. We all need to be more aware of God's beauty around us.

Breathtaking beauty in those skies, Ruth! It is lovely to see your snow pictures also as there is more of a spring like air here.
