Winter White

Saturday evening the snow began and lasted through late yesterday afternoon. We didn't get much more than a few inches but it was heavenly. We've had a normal winter for this area; a bit of snow here and there that lasts for a few days. Last year was heavier than normal but not as bad as two winters ago when there were back to back blizzards.
We are blessed to live in an area of Colorado that isn't hit with snow as much as the Rockies. For those of us still adjusting it is perfect and we love it. I so appreciate all wheel vehicles though; yesterday we dropped my car off at the shop for repairs and we got a rental car. Cute little car-a Malibu but dear hubby said it felt like he was on a roller skate driving it. There was no traction whatsoever and I am thankful we were able to park it in the garage where it will stay until we take it back. At least hubby's car is all wheel drive, otherwise I probably would be housebound until the roads were clear.
The beauty of the snow thrills my heart and make a reflect on several verses from one of my favorite Psalms.

"Purify me with hyssop and I shall be clean; Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."
"Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
"O Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Thy praise."
Psalm 51:7,10,15

  1. Haven't seen any eagles here :-), but yes, lots of birds.

    That was funny what your husband said about driving a roller skate! :-) Glad you made it back home safely, considering it had no traction.

  4. Hello, Noreen, the snow is pretty to see. I love how it makes everything look dressed in white and clean.
    Those scriptures lifted my heart to praise Him for His willingess to make me clean!
    Sweet friend,you,too are let your light shine so brightly!
    I hope you will have your car back soon. I have driven in snow and ice and I much prefer my hubby to drive :0)


  5. Hi Noreen,
    Love the picture...and the scripture...just lovely. Stay safe on the roads.

  6. wow snow on a lake? that's something you don't see here, it looks so pretty there...

  7. Hello Noreen. Thank you for your comments. I was amazed at what you said about teeth growing to fill an empty space, and have been trawling the internet to try and find out if it is true! I thought 'surely not', but I can find no information to tell me whether it is right or not. Did your dentist tell you? I thought it was only rabbits whose teeth grow continuously but apparently walrus' teeth do too. But humans? Surely once it is grown to its full size, thats it? How can we find out for sure? I'm intrigued!
