Trees of the Forest Will Sing

Then the trees of the forest will sing,
they will sing for joy before the LORD,
for he comes to judge the earth.

1 Chronicles 16:33

The view from my cabin kitchen window changed
with the whim of the weather all week-end.
From sunshine to rain or snow,
much of the time was spent
'in the clouds'.

But even with damp and drizzle,
the family worked hard and enjoyed
fellowship and good food.
At an elevation of 4,500 feet above sea level,
some sings of spring are just arriving.

New growth and flowers are
in full bloom, although some plants
are just sending out new bud,
so there's more to search
for on our next visit.

Signs of wildlife were everywhere,
but the forest animals can be elusive.
A tree near the cabin showed signs of a
bear clawing as he hunted for grubs.
A deer and a cow elk observed us
as we tried to observe them!

Serenity, tranquility, and peace
filled the woods and
gave us opportunity to
regenerate as we face
the realities of daily life at home.

God is good!

  3. Thank you so much. We feel very blessed.

    The flower dolls were so much fun! Created on a whim, my mind is now trying to think of ways to create 'Sir' dolls (at another blog readers suggestion). For some reason flowers don't seem quite right, so I'm trying to figure out how leaves and seeds could createa 'Sir' doll to go with the ladies. :)
