White Christmas Wishes

This, Is the Reason for the Season
I always dream of a White Christmas. There is something about a snow-covered surrounding that just makes Christmas sing for those of us who live in Snow Country.
The tree tops are full of their very own Candles like the ones on this branch. God has been lighting the way with natures candles long before wax came along.
Our barn is brilliant with it's red and white. I do miss having stock to tend. The neighborhood cats find their way in and out throughout the year and I don't mind one bit keeping them out of the elements.
Even our Grandloves snowman is feeling the deep freeze and the blanket of snow we received these past couple of days. Hey, Where'd my legs go? and my face?
The fences, wire rolls, birdhouses, trees, everything looks so clean in their fresh fallen snow-clothes.
The hustle and bustle of fall and early winter weather changes, left this wagon parked by the garden. I gave up asking for it to be put away, and now, I'm glad it was left behind. I do love the way the snow has piled high on its tires.

I want to wish all of you a very blessed Christmas filled with memories of old and many new memories being made. Remember the reason for the season as you open your gifts and share meals with your loved ones.
God has been so very good. Merry Christmas Everyone!

We live in snow country and always have. When I was little, it was fun, even working outside of the home, It could be challenging, middle aged and the kids gone and retired not bad, Now at the SENIOR years, it is still pretty but also scaery as far as falling and very troublesome now thaT NEITHER OF us can scoop. Always still pretty to look at it, but prettier on the farm.

Darla, you have published some gorgeous White Christmas pictures. For some reason,I love the trailer most, it is a picture for a post card. Bill left it out so you would send this blessing of a picture. Yes, Snow does somehow make a Christmas scene. Everyone down here prays for a white Christmas, but seldom get one.

Love from down here,
Sherry & Jack

Thanks for the beautiful white Christmas pictures. This way we can enjoy it with you even if ours is quite scarce this year. We're heading up to Gatlinburg on Sunday - and kinda hope we get snowed in!

Rebecca said...

Wow, you had quite the snow storm. We have the cold but no snow...possibly a little on Sunday, but we'll see.

Have a Merry Christmas!

LOVING the snow pics. The 'wire' looks like a wreath hanging on the end of your fence. LOVED the clear roads while traveling this Christmas.
