The Lord paints pretty pictures

Well, we got another helping of snow and this one seems even more beautiful than the last. It seemed to glisten as you looked upon it.

Sure would have made some mighty tasty snow cream ( poor man’s ice cream). Although a covering of snow makes everything look nice and clean, as soon as it is gone, the ugly battle scars of life are still there. All the hurt, sorrow, disappointments, failures are still there too, temporarily forgotten with so much of God’s beauty all over the land.

A pretty snow is really something to behold. It isn’t so pretty if it becomes necessary to move about in it, but it’s pretty just the same.

I realize a lot of folks are afraid of lightning, but a lightning storm is truly a sight to see, especially on the mountaintop somewhere, away from likely lightning targets like trees and structures out in open spaces. I call it the Lord’s fireworks because of all the different colors and noises from it and the way it lights up the sky.

The Lord paints some pretty pictures if folks would slow down long enough to take in the beauty of it all. A rainbow in the sky after a shower is another sight to see. Or what about a little creek in a secluded spot in the woods with a bunch of trout swimming lazily along waiting for an insect to make a fatal mistake and no houses within a mile? It would be about my luck to not even have any fishing tackle, but it would be a pretty sight anyway, even if I couldn’t fish in it.

A view I never tire of seeing is the dawn of a new day because I am made to realize that the number of times I get to see the sun come up in the morning are numbered.

And that’s all from the funny farm until next time. Tyme to play
