Snowy Yard - Beautiful Day!

Our front yard beyond the feeders :)
The back yard - I caught a gust of wind carrying the
top layer of snow in a dance!

The clouds are so heavy you'd never know there is a range of
gorgeous
snow covered
mountains
beyond my backyard!


This is a rare occurance in Sequim.
OH HOW I LOVE THE SNOW! ! !
So, today is a perfect day to decorate for Christmas.
We got our tree yesterday and I set up
the new Willow Tree Nativity set
that Jeff gave me for my birthday.
I added
Three Wisemen from John Spring's collection
What a delight!
And, in all my excitement, my heart is
still and peaceful, overflowing with joy!
Its that precious time for quiet reflection
on all that 'Love' means.
God's love pouring out to us in a myriad of ways saying,
"Look here! Look over there!
See the beautiful gifts I make
for you to enjoy my dear child!
I SOOOO LOVE YOU!"
And one day, when the time was right,
He sent Jesus, a baby -
the most precious gift
He could give to show someone
just how much He loves.

Oh Lord, you're beautiful!
Your heart is exquisite beyond words and imaginings!
Thank you for Your demonstrations of perfect love.
May I love as You do!
Amen
