Snow,Snow and more Snow


Snow,Snow and More Snow.

The Winter of 2013-2014 has been a long,cold, snowy one. In spite of a little 'cabin fever', the beauty of it more than makes up for it in my mind. 

There hasn't just been several inches of snow, but rather, several feet of the white stuff. It has given me lots of opportunities for photos of the birds coming to my feeders when their other food sources were buried. 

But it wasn't just the snow that was a problem for the birds,but the extreme cold, 
sometimes -10 with a wind chill 
of -35 degrees was a real danger to them as well.

                Were they worried? Not a bit! 

 Matthew 6:26 says, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them..."


Can we learn a lesson from the birds?


Yes! No matter the problems we face,we do not need to fear or worry!

The rest of Matthew 6:26 says,"...Are you not much more valuable than they?"

Once again, Gods Word tells us to trust in Him.

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow,for tomorrow will worry about itself."

  1. I'm with you, Sharon, the beauty makes up for the inconvenience. That said, you have had a lot more snow than we have. So good of you to focus on the beauty, and to remember what Jesus taught us. I love that photo of the woodpecker in the blowing snow!
