HE orders the snow~

in the South
the weather channel had
given us a warning
but, who knows
what to expect
of course we don't know how to
keep it straight, we usually
don't drive under these
conditions but once a year or twice

but these nice guys helped straighten him back up ~
(the one on the far right is my husband)
I sat in the truck taking pics. :)

It snowed really hard in a short period of time.
 The remaining pictures, I took
while on our drive into town.

The flag picture was taken
while driving down the road
with the window down.
I believe it is my favorite!

There is just something about snow~
"the child in me returns"
But, the beauty & stillness
is such a wonderful reminder
of God, Our Creator.
Job 37:1-13  The Message
Whenever this happens, my heart stops— I’m stunned, I can’t catch my breath. Listen to it! Listen to his thunder, the rolling, rumbling thunder of his voice. He lets loose his lightnings from horizon to horizon, lighting up the earth from pole to pole. In their wake, the thunder echoes his voice, powerful and majestic. He lets out all the stops, he holds nothing back. No one can mistake that voice— His word thundering so wondrously, his mighty acts staggering our understanding. He orders the snow, ‘Blanket the earth!’ and the rain, ‘Soak the whole countryside!’ No one can escape the weather—it’s there. And no one can escape from God. Wild animals take shelter, crawling into their dens, When blizzards roar out of the north and freezing rain crusts the land. It’s God’s breath that forms the ice, it’s God’s breath that turns lakes and rivers solid. And yes, it’s God who fills clouds with rainwater and hurls lightning from them every which way. He puts them through their paces—first this way, then that— commands them to do what he says all over the world. Whether for discipline or grace or extravagant love, he makes sure they make their mark.

Hi Karen. Beautiful photos of your snowfall there. Pretty and dangerous too. I also like the photo with the flag in it. A bright pop of colour in the white landscape. Blessings, Pamela

These are certainly gorgeous pictures of our Father's wonderful snow. Love the quotes and scripture. I just love snow and wait anxiously for it every winter. Seems we get less and less of it here though.
Give my best to Marilyn.

Karen, I love your photos. The flag really stands out with the snowy back ground. Nice when young people help others. xoxo,Susie

Lovely photos of the snow! Driving in wet snow can be very tricky. : ) Glad the driver didn't drive all the way off the road!

Your kind of snow is so beautiful and I am guessing it is not really cold. We n the other hand have snow and bitter cold,but still there is beauty.

Beautiful post, Karen, and fun to see it through your eyes. Along about this time of year it ceases to be "pretty" for most of us Midwesterners. LOVE the flag picture- xo Diana

Just love the photo of the houe and snow. We get very little snow here too and when we do it tends to shut the city down

Well Girlfriend, Once you said it was snowing I couldn't wait to see your pictures and you certainly did not disappoint....They are all wonderful...I like the one with the flag too but I love the old southern house as well.....
One day your boys will have a big laugh over the ones helping to push the car out of the middle of the road. I bet they have some good stories about that....

Keep warm and keep the pictures coming.....

Love ya,

What beautiful photo's my dear! I so enjoyed seeing them today.

Praying the roads are cleared up by now? Here, we've been dealing with below zero temps. Yesterday was -14 below.

Trish said...
