Good Sunday Morning Y'all!!! I hope that y'all are "snugger than a bug in a rug" this cold and icy morning! Twenty four hours does make a difference! The ice storm came in early in the wee hours of the morning. I snuck out of bed about 4:30 am and ran through the house to peep out the back door window and seen the ice on the deck, and back to bed I went.
For just a few seconds, I was transported back in time, as a child, sneaking around trying to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus. You just gotta treasure memories like that. I crept back to bed and as I drifted back off to sleep, I was thinking about getting peeks of presents under the Christmas Tree, just trying to figure out what treasure was in each and every one of the presents under the tree. Coming from a large family, there was always heaps and mounds of presents. And there was great joy in trying to figure out everyone's gifts, not just your own. It was always fun to dig and look for the small, little packages, in hopes of finding one that may have had a piece of jewelry in it.
One Christmas, when I was in Junior High School, some of the family had been to town on a Saturday morning and I spied a watch in the window of one of the stores on the street square. I ogled and looked at that watch! I wanted that watch so bad!!! I begged my mother for it. She said, "you are not getting it, we've already bought all the presents that we are gonna buy." Well, "What about Santa Claus, couldn't he bring it?" Yes, I was in Junior High, but when you are desperate, you will try anything. ggggg Stay tuned for the conclusion of this story.
I almost forgot the reason for my post this morning. I knew there would be no getting out for church this morning for me. So, after it warmed up a little, I put on my tennis shoes and my hooded winter coat and grabbed my camera and out I went. Oh how I love mornings like this!!!! I snapped away! Thought I would share a few of my favs with you.
I do hope and pray that y'all have enjoyed looking at what I got to see this morning. I just have to give all glory, honor, and praise to God, My Father, for creating such a lovely and beautiful sight for my eyes to behold! Even if we wanted to, as one of God's creations, there is no way we can re-create anything as lovely and as beautiful as God has made. Let us all enjoy the beauty of all there is around us every day. Thank God for all that is beautiful, because He made it all, just for your viewing pleasure!
Warm hugs and lots of love to y'all, Patty
