Whipped Cream!

It's been quite the winter this year, regardless of where you live in the USA.  Yes... it's been harsh.  Flooding due to ice jams....
  VERY cold temperatures... relentless wind...
And, it's also been frosty-pretty... with warm chinook winds... (thank you Lord!)
and a time for reflection... an opportunity for slowing... 
for contemplation...
"Be still and know that He is God."
A time of stunning beauty in white pastels, shadows... surreal color...
moments of amazement at how God paints the sky...

a time to make time... to see,  to drink in... to breathe and feast...
upon  God's magnificent creation...  
"Whipped cream" anyone?!
Snow drifts!  They are growing well  this year!  I love how they remind me of whipped cream!  Awesome, God you are!  
And... that pretty blue sky with "wisps of cotton candy" soaring in the breeze! (and I do mean soaring!)


And then... the bright sparkling colors of spring... (inside the house - not out!) and more... inspiration.  The Promise Of A Primrose... one of the first blooms we get to see in Montana in 'early' spring... yes... it's still a ways off...  no worries; no need to complain... we are cozy... and well fed. Our heating bill is paid... 
our children are safe.  
And... salvation is ours.
 I bought three of these little beauties ($1.99 each) at the grocery store (and a few oranges!).  They remind me there is JOY in  each season, to be content... and always...
BE... thankful ... in all things...
knowing that God IS in every...last...minute...detail.
He is sovereign, with wisdom and knowledge deeper than the ocean, wider than the sky...
How he uses all kinds of weather... to give us beauty in the spring and summer... water for our streams, lakes, trees, grass... cold to kill deadly, pine-killing beetles, bugs... and who knows what all else (not me!)  And... that's just it... we cannot know, but we can know the ONE who DOES! ... and... I am thankful for His inspiration in  everyday life, in being able to see 'whipped cream' in the snowdrifts... to primrose beauties. All is due to His magnificent glory... Amen.
