Good-morning snow


This morning we work up to a dark, cloudy day, promising the forecasted snow. Not being one to typically enjoy the cold, wet moisture, especially when longing for spring, I begrudgingly started the day. However, as I looked out the window in my room, I could not help but stand in awe at the beautiful scene spread before me. During morning Bible study and  breakfast, the clouds had dispersed their flaky contents on the welcoming ground. The tall mountains invisible behind drooping clouds, evergreen trees heavy with moisture from rain and now dusted with glittering snow, and the feeling of a wintery day, spun my attitude around and determined me to have a wonderful, productive, and cheerful day in spite of the previously disagreeable clouds. Thus I pulled out my camera, bundled up, and went outside to feed the animals and capture the beautiful scene (which at this point has melted away). =)

Ah... how beautiful- the overcast sky seems to just color the world in deeper hues, don't you think? I love it. :)

Marissa, thank you for posting. We seldom hear from you here, but your thoughts add a lot to our blog.

Despite the cloudy, overcast, cold, windy day your sunshiny attitude has brightened up the atmosphere in our home. What a beautiful day it has been even though we might have preferred it be warm and sunshiny, with flowers blooming all around (my personal favorite!) Ah, if only we could be in warm San Antonio, or Florida. :-)
