We are (t h a n k f u l l y) having some springish weather up here, but I took these pictures last week when we got fresh snow, and I wanted to share them while snow still looks beautiful to me. I love winter. I love snow. But this has been a hard winter. It has been very dark, spiritually, emotionally. I was so often unable to give myself over to the wonder of winter. I did not feel very alive. And so spring is coming, and I'm ready for spring, but I'm not quite ready to let go of winter yet. I keep coming back to these photos, and remembering the night I took them last week. When I took them, I was flooded with gratitude for being blessed to live in such a beautiful place. I marveled that this could be my ride home from work!
There is something so magical about snow.
It makes everything look fresh and clean, like a blanket of grace.
