Rainbow Leaves

I'm sure I've posted this photo before, but it's one of my favorites and the advantage of this being my blog is that I can post whatever I want. Again.

Wild Child

I'm looking through a book called 1001 Ideas for Color & Paint and have been inspired to concoct some color combos for different rooms in my home.

Up first--the master bedroom.

Lime walls, Charcoal floor (painted concrete) with black and white accents and pops of primary colors.

This is my creation over at COLOURlovers

Snow "Clothes"

Since I live in the south, I don't see snow much. (Read: ever) So seeing snow this past weekend has filled me with a bit of wonder. I've looked back over my photos and am struck with how snow changes a landscape. It covers imperfections; softening them, making them beautiful.

It reminds me of Christ and His righteousness.

I look at myself...I'm rough, imperfect and incapable of changing myself. But Christ's death on the cross changes my landscape. His righteousness clothes me, washing my sins "white as snow" (Isaiah 1:18).

When I see my whole front yard covered in snow I think of Isaiah 43:25 which says: I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.

When I look at the tree branches, once stark and naked, now draped in snowy robes, I think of Isaiah 61:10 which states, "I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels."

I'm so glad that God uses His creation to remind us of Himself! (Romans 1:20)

South Georgia Snowscapes

I kept hearing that it was supposed to snow but I think I was born in Missouri and my mom never told me, because I couldn't believe it till I saw it.

Then it started.
This was the sight the next morning: Snowy dreamscapes.

It was fun while it lasted, but I'm glad it's a novelty around here.
