6:30 am; View From My Porch

Five out of five children at my house were disappointed that there was school today; they were hoping for a snowday.

As you can see, the bus still came on schedule.

The view from my porch took my breath away.  Sarah and I stood and gazed and said, “It’s so beautiful!”

I thought of God, and the abundant, indulgent, generous, overflowing loveliness of His creation.


You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

Matt Redman, from his soul-stirring song “10,000 Reasons”


Have a blessed day, my friends!  Seth, Sarah, and I are going to get ready for our Bible Study this morning.  I can’t wait.

  1. That is my favorite song right now! I play it over and over and sing rather loudly along with Matt. The early morning shots you took were beautiful! Did you have a mug of hot coffee in your hand, that would have perfected the whole mood. Steve told me it was a beautiful morning so I went to the window to look out but I had to look over many rooftops…still beautiful because everything is covered in white, white, white, and then a pastel pink sky. I have always loved where you live and am so very happy that you have this view, it must give God pleasure to see how you enjoy it and how it lifts your thoughts to Him.I hope you have a great day with the two little ones that are home with you! I love you my dear friend!

  2. I am SO jealous! I wish we had snow….some years at this time we do, some years we don’t. We’ve been stuck in don’t for a couple of years now. God’s creation never ceases to amaze…such a Gorgeous view.The clouds, the trees…so beautiful.
