I like this one because you can see how white they are with fresh snow (it's what looks like the cloud bank behind those houses). You can also see that it is trash day in our neighborhood. Not quite as lovely on the eyes, but ever-so-helpful.
Tuesday was incredibly gusty and windy, with dust blowing everywhere. Our air outside looked so gray-ish brown and murky with the dust that it was just positively yucky. Wednesday was gray and very dreary all day long. Then, the rain started towards the evening. It rained all night long off and on, and this is what we woke up to this morning. Sunshine, blue skies, and clean air! The mountains that surround us on three sides were just dazzlingly gorgeous, and covered in a beautiful layer of new-fallen snow. My girls and I couldn't resist the loveliness outside, so even though it was a bit crisp and cold, we went for a walk around our neighborhood.
Yesterday was a rough day for a few different reasons and by the end of it I felt just as gray and dreary as the weather. You could say that the sky and I shared similar moods and even cried together. But we won't say that, because well, that's just kind of cheesy. However, I will say that it was a wonderful blessing to wake up to all this happiness and sunshine outside. What a great reminder of the Lord's mercies which are new every morning.
