Almost Spring?

'Cold Tears' - Photo by Micki Findlay

Like everyone else on the planet, I am pretty tired of snow. Yet, I have to admit, it makes for some very beautiful images. Yesterday morning I took advantage of that beauty by taking several pictures of my backyard. There was something magical happening as the sun kissed the ice droplets that hung from the tree branches and plants. The sun's warmth was a long-missed friend and it felt heavenly to have it back again, even if just for awhile. It never ceases to amaze me how its coming makes the world a magical place. And how the combination of the snow and sun transforms even the most tired, deadest plants to an art form. What a marvelous world we live in. God is the ultimate artist and has seen fit to share some of his talent with us; his most complex and wonderful creations. I am so grateful for that. And I hope I never forget where my talents came from.

The first day of spring begins tomorrow morning at 4:44 am. I wonder what spring has in store for us? I am so looking forward to a change in the weather. But until that happens, I will try my best to appreciate whatever God chooses to give us.

And take more pictures...
