Wintry Themes

There was no sunrise this morning, only light that slowly seeped into the atmosphere, showing the gray of skies and surroundings. Days like this require sunshine of the soul! Scripture, photo, and verse work together to revive a wintry spirit and bring sunshine to the heart!

"The day is thine, the night also thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun."

Psalm 74:16

Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the nigh thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eve-drops fall, heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

Forstar Midnight
S.T. Coleridge


  1. I am such a lover of winter, but this year it has seemed long and drawn out with days of some sort of in between season feel. Gray and brown. I am glad you posted what you did today.
    I am still wishing for a good snow storm to make it feel like a real winter !

  2. These pictures are just beautiful!
