And yesterday was the day to go out and take pictures, but the roads were too dangerous so I stood on the front porch, such an adventurer I am. But today after Bible Study I meandered on the way home, stopping here and there and capturing some of that beauty. It was the kind of snow that made good snowmen....I thought he was kinda funny with his pine cone eyes and pine needle hair, clever use of availability.
Before I left this morning, I snapped this pic of the beautiful pine tree across the street from my house.
We are in the middle of a study on Ruth in our Wednesday Bible Class and this week our discussion was about how God is omnipresent in our lives....always there, knowing us while we were melding our bones together in our mother's womb before we were born, guiding us, loving us forever. As I left church I stopped less than a block away and captured this. It spoke to me of God's omnipresence. Even with the sometimes entanglements of darkness and starkness that can surround us, there is still His beacon that gives us the strength to carry us through the roughest times in our lives.
I think I am feeling a little melancholy today. Do you ever get that way?? No reason, and I am too old to blame it on a "period" or even menopausal, too late for that too. Maybe it's because there are several ladies in our Bible class that are having some major health issues, maybe it's because it's the end of February and the sun hasn't been shining that much lately, who knows. I am usually pretty joyful, but ever once in awhile I fall off of the happy wagon. This is one time I am grateful to live alone. No one around to see my chin dragging, it's not a pretty sight.
Linking up with Madge's Rurality today. I thought the above pic look fairly rural, altho it is right in the middle of the next town over from me. The suburbs around here do a darn good job of leaving lots of open spaces and forest preserves, so if you are feeling a little hemmed in, all you have to do is drive a short distance and that city-feel is quickly gone.
"When God solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when God doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities."
Until next time....
