I look back through my Picasa albums, and am reminded that I do miss Summer with its
bright colors and the warmth on my skin. I miss hearing the lawn mowers and the children's
voices echoing from the neighbor's pool. I miss the feeling of walking through the grass
and dinners on the porch. But my friends, I would not have wanted to miss the breathtaking
beauty and grandeur that I experienced during my early morning drive today, on the
trip to take one of my granddaughters to her pre-school. After walking her into
her classroom, and the goodbye hug, I just had to drive the long way home, and stop
to capture only a bit of the exquisite beauty for you.
My car thermometer read 4 degrees.
produced the sight that one only dreams of.
Truly a winter wonderland.
"Snow comes by night--a quiet magic. A secret tiptoeing down while people sleep...
Snow comes by night to fill grown-ups with wonder,and children with enchantment."
"As long as the earth endures, sunshine and harvest, cold and heat, summer and
winter, day and night, shall not cease." Gen. 8:22
One can't help but think, at the end of the day, sitting by the fire, with a comfy blanket, and
surrounded by those we love. My hopelessly romantic personality sometimes takes over:)
Snowy winters do that to me.
A pot of steaming chili would make the perfect dinner tonight. Yes, Summer will be here
shortly, but I would not want to be missing this lovely season of the year, no matter
how many layers I must wear when I go outside.
That said, I must say, I am thinking about those who live in the south,
as they anticipate the coming ice storm." Every season does have its fury, along
with its beauty.
Wherever you live, whatever the weather is offering to you lately, I want to wish
you simple joys and unexpected blessings as you journey through each day. Thank
you for taking time out of your day, to stop by here, and for giving me the privilege
of sharing my day's nature happenings with you.
