Here in New England we sometimes have ice storms. They are extremely dangerous as we often have "black ice" (ice that is too thin to be noticeable but extremely slippery) form on steps, sidewalks, driveways, stairs, the roads etc. Many Power lines will go down, along with trees.
Yet, I have been able to discover and capture the beauty of this natural "fiasco", with my little digital camera. These photos are not taken with a professional camera.
A Lilac bud in Ice
I was reminded of a valuable lesson while taking these photographs, I have been struggling lately through different lessons that God has been teaching, I saw them as bothersome, and not something I should be learning from. Just like the Beauty I found in the disaster of an ice storm, there is always a treasure to find during trials. Along the way I have been discovering the treasures, and things don't seem as bad.
It is amazing how beautiful yet dangerous Ice can be, It is even more amazing how much my Savior desires to teach me! There would have been no beauty without the storm, just like I will never grow in Christ-unless I learn to trust Him during a "storm".
(Ice on the wire! It covered EVERYTHING!)
Please watch the SmileBox, I was able to take many stunning photos! Please leave a comment!
Yes, a Sprinkling of patience...has turned into "Lord I need a Gallon of patience!"
You see my darling 4 yr old brother has a new "thing" His "thing" is... I want it and I want it NOW!
No matter how sweetly I remind him to wait just a minute for the puzzle, game, toy, book, food, etc. He still demands it NOW.
And He always wants it right in the middle of my busiest moments.
When I tell him he must wait he clings to my skirt and begins t o whine and bawl...... *sigh*.
My Mom and Dad are working on this with him!
But I find it rather difficult to maintain a sweet angelic disposition when he acts this way. The worst of it is he wants something desperately, but changes his mind within 20 minutes and wants something else!
Throughout the day "CALEB, what are you up to?" is a constant phrase.
The biggest problem is he is sooooo cute!
So, I keep praying for patience. And then I reach down, scoop him into my arms and kiss his little nose, and he promptly licks me...... *sigh*
I am in my twenties and I am wholly dedicated to serving my Lord Jesus since July 24,97.
I graduated from Bible College in May 2011 alongside my then Fiance...
