Winter's Marvel

. .. ... ..... .. .... .. .... .... .... ... . .. ... .. . . . .. .
Marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well...

**from my kitchen window across the way, in an early morning sunrise!

As a family, we have just been enjoying the recent winter sights, and smells. You know... the ones of woodsmoke in the air, or when the scent of snow is in the air.  You can tell!!  The scenes that early morning brings with the sunrise. Even the evening hours with the rise of the moon that lead into the nighttime skies.  It doesn't take long... just mere minutes for the whole scene to change.. have you ever noticed?

The fowl of the air are also capturing our attention.  Snow geese!  A whole flock of them -just down the road aways... always catching our attention as they fill the skies.  Begging us to hop in our car - to drive and get a closer look. We wish more would come!!  Even, the little "snow" birds... we've scattered seed in hopes to gain their attention as well. 

These photos simply hope to capture the "joy" we've felt - celebrating the goodness of God.  He is marvelous in all He does.  In all his creation... (see, Psalm 139)  
By the way,  we're still working on memorizing these verses.

We share memories, as we talk about these things...we go out and do our best to enjoy these "gifts" whenever, possible.  All of these photos are part of early morning conversations...while waiting for the bus.  Or, as we crowd the windows at the next marvel - we encounter!

I love this quote, I found, recently..meaning I think it sums things up quite nicely - when one SLOWS down long enough, to pay attention to life as it happens around them.  May we only do this more... and more!

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing. ~Camille Pissarro
