Snow covered apple tree
I thought I would show some pictures of our snowy surroundings while they still look somewhat like this. It's been warm up here the past couple of days, and things are melting. I don't think any of us are deluding ourselves that spring is near, but days like this surely make it seem nearer. Here's what you'd see if you drove into our snowy driveway:
Snowy treetops out back:
"God thundereth marvelously with His voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.
"For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength." (Job 37:5-6)
Next year's firewood covered with snow:
Year after next's firewood (still in log form) covered with snow
More wintry woodpiles
"[The LORD] giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
"He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?
"He sendeth out His Word, and melteth them: He causeth His wind to blow, and the waters flow." (Psalm 147:16-18)
More winter woods
And more wintry woods
And yet one more of the wintry woods
"Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
"By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the water is straitened." (Job 37:9-10)
And one last picture of our snowy surroundings (the "mountain range" in the foreground is actually our stone wall!) :
"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail?" (Job 38:22)
