Winter is Here!

You never know what you’re gonna get as far as the weather is concerned in Missouri.

The unusually hot weather we had most of September and October led me to believe that Fall was never actually going to happen this year.  But then at the end of October, the tree leaves had finally started to turn which is really late in the season for us.

We then had about  2 weeks of cooler weather and now today I wake up to SNOW!

YAY!

I love how the leaves in our yard are still a mix of 3 seasons right now.  One tree still has full green leaves on it, another is bright red with Fall leaves, and lastly, we have another that has lost all of its leaves. I guess that barren tree along with the snow means that Winter is going to, has actually arrived.

BOO!

I’m not really a winter person, but if we have to have Winter then bring on the snow because I really do love the snow.  I just wish the temperature could be just a teeny tiny bit warmer when it snows… Okay, make that a LOT warmer 😀

Overwhelmed by You

Hey everyone and happy Monday to you!

I started my Monday off by receiving a surprise gift when I opened the curtains.

Not only did it snow again but we also had visitors.

There’s something extra peaceful about freshly fallen snow.  Couple that with a family of deer and I would say that God was giving me the exactly what I needed today.

An overwhelming dose of peace.

God alway seems to deliver just what is needed and He always seems to overwhelm me with his perfect timing.

Today’s Music Monday song is Overwhelmed by Big Daddy Weave.

Have a fabulous week!

Snow Gifts

Good morning from snowy Missouri!  Last night we went to bed and the snow was coming down hard.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Whiting out the Brown

Quietness fills my ears as I watch the snow floating softly down like feathers,

covering everything in a blanket of white.

Trees once brown and decaying,

now covered by a fluffy snow floating down,

whiting out the dull brown

Once bare tree branches bend beneath the weight

looking as if they are about to break.

Bowing beneath the lovely white

instead of broken a beautiful sight.

As I watch each little intricate detail make this picture before me today

I know it is time to pray

Dear Lord, thank you for the never ending beauty you always put before my eyes.  And today thank you for the snow, softly floating down, sprinkled from your hands, dusting everything in sight with your beauty. Amen
