Snow World

You’ll never guess what happened at my house!

It snowed! To be very honest, I kind of like the snow. (Don’t start throwing thing. Please!)

Being a skier since my oldest was a baby, I really don’t mind the snow. (I haven’t skied since I got my new hip, but I’m planning to go back before too long. Maybe.)

This morning, though, the snow-world was extra special. Out my back door is a lot filled with trees. All those trees’ branches and stems were encased in ice. When I opened the door to let Queen Molly out just as the sun was beginning to come up, the world *sparkled!* (It was -2 degrees outside, so she’s lobbying for an indoor potty. I don’t blame her.)

I took these pics with my iPhone. Sorry, I couldn’t get the bling on the trees to show up for you, but just try to imagine it. The sun shining through the clear ice, highlighting each and every twig.  

Cookout, anyone?

Yes, it’s very cold out–below freezing. (In the Pioneer Woman’s hometown, it was nearly 30 below this morning. THIRTY BELOW!)

But this happens so seldom, why not just enjoy it? Take a picture so you won’t forget the beauty, write down the scary low temperature so you won’t forget what year it was that we had that low down temp and celebrate?

You might want to stop and thank God–For that spouse you can snuggle with and stay warm. For that house that needs painting and fixing, but keeps you out of the elements. For friends who care about you and check in on you and pray for you.

Oh! G-Man just looked out. The sun is shining and it’s snowing again. Tiny, tiny flakes, sparkling like glitter as it swirls down.

What a fantastic, gorgeous and amazing world you’ve given us, Lord. I’m just wild about You!
