We had our first frost this morning! It was so cold but so pretty, all of the colors that were common place the day before were now veiled with a filmy white curtain. As the sun rose a steamy fog appeared on the ponds, half hiding the frozen cattails that stood sentry on the banks. All was calm, all was bright. What a perfect way to start December – a winter wonderland of purity, blotting out all that had been there before.

It’s funny that even though everything was one color, it was far from boring. The covering of all distracting and competing colors caused there to be greater focus on the phenomenon of the frost and then a looking towards the sun and the effect that it had on the the whole landscape. The ground sparkled as it reflected the sun, yes, even the very rocks cried out, shining forth God’s glory. The smoking ponds sent their sweet savors up to heaven while the birds sang praises. Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
