Frosty morning

I had Friday off, but had an appointment fairly early in the morning.    When I drove out of the garage I was amazed at the beauty around me.  I took the back roads for a little bit, and had to fight the urge to stop and start hiking into some fields to take pictures.  I did stop on a dirt road, and get some photos near the edge of the road.
It was very cold that morning - only 7 degrees.  There had been a heavy frost, and then a light coating of snow that transformed the world overnight.  Then in the morning, the sky was blue and the sun was shining!
Here's what I'm talking about.


 Look at that bright, beautiful sky!



 The grasses are transformed.



Even the roadside is pretty,



 And those fields are incredible!







Days like this are such a reminder of God's power and majesty!  Who else could transform every branch and every blade of grass?

"When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"
Psalm 8:3-9

I know - I had to take Chelsea to work that morning - it was absolutely breathtaking with the frost and the fog all over

God is so good to give us beauty in each season. I am glad I live in a part of the world where there are seasons. The other day I saw a big patch of daffodils that had just bloomed and it made my heart happy!!

Your pictures are so beautiful. I love how God puts on the dead brown earth a gorgeous coat of white. God can do the same for our lives. When we were dead in sin, he can wash us white as snow. Your scriptures speak to all of us today.

I just love when the snow/dew/ice sticks to the trees and branches like that! Hopefully we will not be seeing that again this year though!
