That’s right, it’s cold enough that I went King James on y’all! Lovely’s accident on icy roads made me realize just how much I have to be thankful for. The roads remain awful but God is still big enough and His grace sufficient for us. Below zero temperatures mean the heavy snow will be with us for a while I think. I braved the sub-zero weather for a few pictures. Things are blanketed where they were before the storm…even this water pot on our outside coffee table. Our coffee table now looks more like a double (or triple) stuff Oreo cookie now. The steps are well covered too. I’m no fan of horrible cold but it does have a deadly beauty. The white and sapphire palate is severe but amazing but I think the barbecue is once again on hold. This is such a brave tree standing vigil in the frigid new world. Our solar lights may have trouble energizing under the snow and now stand as snow mushrooms. My favorite Christmas tree is not decorated by the hand of man rather it’s dusted by the fingers of God…now It’s not merely a frost but snow on the needles. The gate’s locks will remain untested until there’s a melt off. Our fence has braved some storms in the summer now comes winter’s onslaught. The drifting wasn’t as bad as forecast fortunately. The sun has no heat today but I’m warmed by those praying for our family. Lovely is fine…so is our vehicle. God is more of a fence of protection then our vinyl fence could ever be.
