We are almost till March,but in Manitoba that just means we have about one more month of winter.It could be a little more or a little less.Temperatures may vary from pleasantly mild to cold.
Spring is coming, of that we can be sure.
Today I share a few of my winter visitors with you.I also want to share a few encouraging Bible verses.Some days I struggle to remain positive but reading these verses has helped me.
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

8 It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
This last photo is an attempt at an HDR shot.During our winters the photo subjects are scarce, so these Amaryllis flowers had to do. I took several, perhaps 4-5 pictures, some under exposed, some over-exposed and some just right, then took them into a program called Aurora and merged them into one. A little tweaking and this was the final result.
