    That blue-gray time of day is captured very well in this photo. You make winter look lovely. *laughing* It is really lovely. Especially from afar! 😉
    It’s been frigid here–horribly so. But the house is warm and sunrises and sunsets from the windows are, as always, amazing. They remind me of how small I am and how LARGE He is–and how very loved we all are.

      I know…winter “looks” lovely. It doesn’t “feel” too lovely tough. It’s been in the single digits here…my furnace is running and running…we’re keeping it at 62 and lower at night….but I’m afraid to see my next bill. Good thing we have a big God to depend on. I like to think of the snow like a blanket of his love. <3

    I found some duct work that was falling apart in the basement. Hence, there was alot of heat being released down there, that I’m sure was doing a number on the gas bill. Praising God that it was fixed today. I love this picture and quote. Also feeling very blessed tonight, staying home and warm with my children and an added teenager who is like family, as well.

      Yay! God! I love your heart of gratitude Sandra!!
      Stay warm!!

  4. A magical, snowy scene! Enchanting!

  5. Even though I don’t see much of it, I do like to see photos of snow during our summertime in New Zealand.

      I know it too. The temperature goes down 20 degrees just gazing on a snowy scene.
      But…in the winter….I like to gaze at a tropic scene. Funny how we do that. Yes?

  6. What a beautiful wintry scene, looks like snowy apples… Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #67!

      They are hydrangea trees. I love how they look beautiful for so long…even the winter.
