Good Things,  Ramblings

His Number is Up.

After several days of gloomy skies, the sun graced us yesterday. Its loveliness was so welcome, I decided to head out to the back yard and enjoy the crunch under my boots and the sparkliness of the snow.

I love it that God gave us evergreens. They're so reliably happy when all other color has faded.

The sky was a gorgeous blue!

And I wish you could have seen all the glimmer on the snow…

I'm very excited for this mulberry to come back to life. This year, I vow to get to the fruit before the birds do!

As I looked around the winter landscape, imagining birdsong and harpists, I was thankful for ——- wait a sec.

Back up.

Stare.

Still staring, suddenly speechless.

(If there were any crickets around these frozen parts, they'd be chirping.)

The birdsong stopped, the harpists left my head, and cold reality settled over me.

I crunched my way back inside the house, and this guy chose to stay outside enjoying the day's loveliness.
