I took a beautiful, quiet, early morning walk in the woods behind my home in northeast Iowa after receiving some heavy, wet snowfall the night before.

    I very seldom see snow, so this is a real treat for me, Lorilee! You have captured a wonderfully tranquil scene and what I interpret as an invitation to silence. The Psalms tell us, “Be still and know that I am God.” When I look at this image, I can envision the Lord beckoning us through the narrow passage to join Him on the path that lies ahead. A beautifully contemplative piece!

  • Thank you, Bonnie!!! To capture the beauty of winter, you really do need to get out there very early in the morning . . . it is so quiet and it really does beckon one to talk to Him!! Thank you for sharing that Scripture with me today . . . it is was one of my very favorites!! Have a lovely day!! :-)
