Winter beauty

"He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes." Psalm 147:16)

"For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth ..." (Job 37:6a)

"He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?" (Psalm 147:17)

"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?  or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail?" (Job 38:22)

"Praise the LORD ... snow, and vapor; stormy wind fulfilling His word." (Psalm 148:7-8)

"Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and snow out of the north."  (Job 37:9)

  "By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened." (Job 37:10)

"Out of whose womb came the ice?  and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?  The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen."  (Job 38:29-30)

On Thursday and Friday we had some serious snow and ice storms.  So on Saturday Mr. T thought it a perfect time for a snowshoe trek to a favorite destination of his.  Starting in our backyard, he hiked through the woods to the hidden pond pictured at the top of the post.  It takes about 35 to 45 minutes depending upon how often one stops to take pictures.  He actually did this trek twice, because the camera batteries died soon after reaching the pond the first time.

Along the way in both directions he found many interesting things to snap photos of, including a rushing brook with frozen edges, pictured in the second photo down in the body of the post and also a closer look below.
 Even the spindly little bushes below were covered with ice and snow.
 It was interesting how even the grasses were ice coated.
  Another unusual sight was the snow-and-ice-covered cattails pictured below.
Hope you've enjoyed these photos of New Hampshire's winter beauty!


  1. Not a fan of the cold but that snow certainly is beautiful!

  2. What beautiful pictures of snow and ice. And thank you for sharing the scriptures. I've never before considered how many references there might be to snow in the Bible.

  3. Gorgeous photos. I too had not realized how many Bible verses had snow and cold in them.

  4. Oh this Florida girl loves the pictures and the wonderful Scriptures you put with them. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. Enjoy all that beauty for me too and stay safe!

  5. Beautiful photos of snow, and such lovely verses to go along with them. Please give my compliments to Mr. T for the photos.

  6. These are such beautiful pictures. I don't like being out in the snow, but I sure like to look at it. Like the others, I never realized how many verses refer to snow.
