Simple + Southern Sunday No. 66

“Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭136:26‬

“And talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in. How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care. How long it’s been since yesterday, what about tomorrow and what about our dreams and all the memories we share?”
John Denver

“Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough places shall become level ways, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:5-6

A solemn country lane

The old red barn, hidden in summer, is even more noticeable with a white surrounding.

The unusual and interesting bark of the birch is often used in arts and crafts creations.

Local livestock are thrilled to see a good supply of this delicacy!

Virginia having a blast in Steamboat – an angel making an angel!

Not petrified wood but it’s cold enough today to be hard as a rock!

As I’m currently counting calories, I imagined these shrubs as being sprinkled with powdered sugar!

If you look beyond the beautiful red berries, you’ll notice a once-lively nest…and it sits just outside our window!

The Southern Appalachians are constantly giving us a new and delightful view.

The garden seems to find a needed time to rest.

A treat like this is often enjoyed in the garden – but not today!

The old oak seems to be reaching out to hold up its neighboring maple!

The metal rings propped on the fence came from wagon wheels of a wagon, that in times past, could be found in the red barn that is seen in a previous photo.

Winter gives the red berries a chance to show off!

I’m thinking we will be glad to see white blooms on the dogwood beside the big oak.  But no need to rush…a cold winter day is a part of everyday living.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
Psalm 122:1

    Everything is beautiful with snow. Thanks for sharing your view covered in white – or powdered sugar. We had only flurries…not cold enough to stick. The real cold came after the rain and snow fell, so we were very happy not to have ice. Your red berries are so striking in the snow – like red birds always are against the white blanket. I hope you have a blessed day (and week)!

      Kim, thanks so much sweet friend! After our dusting of snow Friday night, Saturday was so cold and windy! Happy Wednesday, my friend!
