That’s my laptop in the corner of the picture because the comfy, leather couch in the living room has become my office. Whenever my husband takes a break from work in the back room, he walks “into my office” and heads straight to the window. He loves to watch life out on the ice and I enjoy watching him watch life. (even though he never knocks at my office door!)
This morning, we woke up to a winter wonderland. Big fluffy snowflakes are taking their time landing on the back deck. Everything around us is calm and beautiful now. It’s like we’ve taken a big breath and exhaled – finally, there’s no more mud and slush. Our little world is blanketed with crisp, clean, white snow and it’s lifted our spirits. Even our outside garbage bin looks good because fresh snow has fallen.
I wish we could bottle this serenity.
It’s the perfect day for a warm sweater and a long walk.
…for the world is mine, and all that is in it. Psalm 50.12b
