Good Morning to you!
I love the way that the variation of light
changes so quickly in the morning
and then in the evening as the sun sets.
Cloudy skies sure do make for the best colours.
Often I find myself just considering how the light changes
in the clouds, in the snow, in the trees.
God has created such beauty and
I sometimes consider that most will
miss those variations in nature as life's
demands keep us moving so quickly.
Thinking of light.
Our community centre has a snow castle being built.
It needs some lighting in the darkness.
There are some glow sticks that were available through
the community centre but they are only one time use items.
So we have decided to create some ice candle holders.
We can place tea lights in them and they can be used
on more then one occasion.
Below is our first one.
We used a mushroom container for the base and then
a grape juice jug (cut in half) for the holder part.
We put some evergreen
branches in the ice and as it warms
they will give off some nice scent.
It's so pretty when there is a candle in it.
Like a fireplace in the forest.
This week I also put up some chopped up roast.
I had canned chicken..now there is some canned beef.
Good for soup or a quick meal.
I'm finding the more time we are spending outside
the less energy we have for meal prep.
So...I am especially thankful for these kinds of items
tucked away in the pantry.
My younger daughter
made some delightful sugar cookies this week.
They were pretty and tasted delicious!
With the variations of light.
It's amazing how the sun which is oh so slanted
at this time of year
lights up the evergreens so that they glow.
The boughs laden with snow on the outside
giving concealment to the little birds
that flutter in and out finding food.
The icicles hanging from the eves are also very pretty.
I was surprised the other day to see a chickadee
fly up and land on one.
They do like to peer in the windows.
Perhaps it's their "people-vision"
and they find us entertaining?
I took my children out for another ski yesterday afternoon.
It was later in the afternoon and the sun was going down.
The light up through the clouds was beautiful
and as the light changed it was harder to see the snow under our skis.
A thoughtful neighbour made a skidoo trail for us through part of the forest
so that we could meet the main trail.
Attention to detail....
that is what I think of when I consider the variations
of light that I see.
God is so specific....
in all things!
May we read His Word
and know His Truth!
Thanks for dropping by!
Love and Prayers,
