Just last week I was marveling over the beauty of God's handiwork. The sky was gorgeous. My lilac hedge had turned golden yellow and the tree tops were crowned with golden leaves. Now, the last two days have been winter wonderlands. Snow falling by the hour, coating the world. Every tree laden with even more beauty. As white as snow.

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Isaiah chapter 1, verse 18.

Hi, Maggie Ann!
Have you gotten much snow?
I like how you used the scripture "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow" when referring to the snow. Just like the snow covers the earth, He covers our sins, and makes us white as snow. Beautiful!

Your sky pictures are beautiful. God's handiwork IS glorious! We've yet to get snow ... but should get some anytime now. Our temps have been running ten degrees above normal (not complaining ;) ... stay snug in your cozy home. Thank you for the award, you are so kind. I'll check the details when I get a chance. Hugs,

Beautiful photos!
We, too, had a little snow Tuesday, which is rare for this southeast. We were thrilled!
Love the Scripture you posted with it!
Thank you for visiting me!
Hope you were able to find info on the book. I am loving it.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hello Dear Maggie Ann!
It's the last evening of my visit to my daughters home. Tomorrow evening I will be back at the cabin.
We visited a huge craft mall today complete with workers dressed as "A Christmas Carol" characters and caroling going on throughout the building. It was so much fun!
Anyway, I wanted to take a few minutes while I can to visit you and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving as I know next week will be a very busy one for me.
As always, Maggie Ann, I've enjoyed my visit and loved reading your daybooks and viewing your lovely pictures. Most of all--I love the encouragement always given from God's Word!
Happy Thanksgiving with love!
Claudia O.
P.S.--enjoy your snow!
