The meltdown...

It's a sparkly winter wonderland in the meadow across the street from our house on this mid-December day. Beautiful!

Deborah, I saw your comment on Cindy Swanson's blog, and decided to visit your blogs (I enjoy your writing very much).

What beauty! I love words - but sometimes my spirit craves a vista, and you provided that this morning.

I have a 'list a mile long' of things to do (what kind of person decides to rearrange ALL her books, the week before Christmas??), but I can't tell you the joy it brought to see these images.

More and more, I want to notice the magnificence in each day - and these pictures of ice on nature inspired me today.

Thank you for this gift of beauty on your blogs. Stay warm!

If you want a smile of encouragement, check out what God - and His people - did for me and my family.

Merry Christmas!

PS Sorry to add another comment - but I was wondering.

I do the Powerpoint's on Sundays at my church, where we put the songs on the screen, over top pictures of beauty.

This first picture is the right resolution and just the right arrangement. May I use it this Sunday for one of our song backgrounds?

Thanks again for the gift of beauty today!

So glad you enjoyed my blogs. I have so much fun keeping them, and it's such a relief since I discovered that I simply do NOT have what it takes to be a traditional scrapbooker. ; )

Many blessings on you and your family. Have a blessed Christmas!!

P.S. And of COURSE you may use the photo in your PowerPoint! I'd be honored. I just snapped the shot...the Creator of the Universe gets photo credit. ;)

Thanks so much, Deborah. I'll share your photo-authorship with readers in my church, they'll be delighted!

Thanks again -

Dear Deborah,
I dropped by to wish you Happy Christmas!

Deborah...I haven't been blogging much lately -- seems that I really lose interest in the "garden" when I can't get out and till the ground. I enjoy your pictures! I know my sister who also lives in Kansas is having a tough winter with all of the ice and snow -- looks like you are getting it in spades! Take care!

Deborah Raney said...

I've MISSED your blog, Mimi! I check back every so often. Hope you'll post something soon. But I know what you mean about having trouble getting motivated when you can't really enjoy the garden. Yes, we've had quite a winter already and it's not even January!

Your ice and snow pictures are gorgeous. If we must endure the cold at least it gives us some beautiful images! All provided by The Creator (so generously) as you say.
