Leaf Icicles

We wrap ourselves in coats and gloves for a cool walk to school.  It's 28 degrees outside.  We watch our breathe dissolve in the cold air and it feels so good.

Avery is in a happy mood.  She hops along enjoying life.  She points up to the moon.  It is following us.  If only she could outrun it... she tries to no avail.

As we round the corner from our house we all stop in our tracks.  A maple tree covered in icicles.  The tree looks like it's crying.  It is breathtaking.  And we all take time to thank God for a sweet gift. 

The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.  Psalm 65:8

And so I live today listening for His song of joy.  I think I hear it.
