With the pets happy from receiving some love, I ventured to the kitchen to start the coffee. I looked around at the things I should do but decided to cop-a-squat instead and spend some quiet time in prayer and journaling. Within a couple hours I was feeling tired so guess what I did? I snuggled under the warmth of a blanket on the couch and napped until ten. Although it was my friend's text tone that initially jarred me back awake, it was the sunshine fighting to get through the blinds and curtains that truly awakened me.
This second start to the day wasn't slow moving but a jump to my feet. I opened the curtains and blinds and let the sunshine stream in. The warmth on my face, exhilarating. I've missed the day starting like this. It is wonderful.
As I looked out our bedroom window, shock shaped my face. I couldn't believe how high the snow is on the deck, nearly to the top of our rails. Wow! I grabbed my camera to take pictures of the sunshine and snow.
Something that amazes me daily is how it's impossible to capture God's beauty with a camera.
For God, who said,"Let light shine out of darkness,"
made his light shine in our hearts
to give us the light of the knowledge
of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ."
2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV
