Winter Day



Winter Day


Snow laden branch

shivers on brisk winter day

waiting for springtime




Hopeful Blessings ~ Wendy

We had a white Christmas followed by a rain drenched New Year’s Day! Β  I guess you could say that we had a fresh start to 2013… What has your first week of 2013 been like?

    1. I am glad to hear that 2013 is going well for you so far, Laurie! This morning I heard on the news that the NHL hockey teams may be playing again shortly. This will make a lot of Canadians very happy. πŸ™‚

  1. With the exception of one cold sunny day, last week was rainy and bone chilling. For us on the South Texas Gulf Coast that means temperatures that don’t rise above the mid 40’s in the daytime. πŸ™‚ This week is predicted to be much the same, with storms and heavy rain tomorrow. Since we have had no hard freezes yet, I am still enjoying fresh herbs from the garden. Basil is the only thing that hasn’t survived.

    1. Yum! Fresh herbs in January sounds wonderful, Mary Ann. The rain has washed away most of our snow – except, of course, in our mountains. But I have more snow pictures to show this week…

  2. Well let me tell you, I usually don’t like the beginning of the year because not only is it cold and dreary but my birthday is the following week. However, the Lord has convicted me about being blue about being a year older. So now I’m praising God for getting a year older and a year closer to glory. Blessing Wendy, I think I feel a post to my blog coming on lol.

    1. Early Happy Birthday greetings to you, Shazza! I will be 52 in March, so I’m closer to glory than you…(only in age)! I don’t feel quite as perky as normal this time of year; but I give myself permission to walk a little slower etc. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you, Daisy! We don’t get snow, normally, very long here…but it’s a cheery change when it does.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo ( I am thinking about B&W pictures still…can’t wait to try it!)

  3. Let me try a Haiku to answer:

    My daughter got hives
    Itchy, painful, all over
    Glad she got better

    Son had long time off
    Returns to school tomorrow
    We had lots of fun

    Dear husband busy
    Helping sick people at work
    I pray for his joy

    Need to clean the house
    But need to clean my heart more
    Only Jesus can!

    It’s been a good start to 2013. Looking forward to writing more soon! Loving the winter pictures as we continue with tropical weather! Blessings to you tonight–Alison

    1. Alison, I love how you answered my question! Great Haiku! I’ll be waiting to see one on your blog with some of your own pictures too. πŸ™‚

      My youngest brother used to get hives when he was little…I’d forgotten all about that. Glad your little girl is better. My cold has mellowed out so I could do some cleaning today. I agree that our heart cleaning should always take priority…

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ Good morning, Paulama! I hope your renovations of the country abode are going well and that you are having restful moments too.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

    1. Glad to hear it’s not too cold for you, Melody! We have frequent mild days – but you have more sunshine… I love those blue skies I often see in your blog photos. πŸ™‚

      Blessings dear friend & neighbor ~ Wendy xo

  4. Wonderful haiku! You have us waiting with you . .and a little shivery! We just have patches of snow on the ground and the temps are suppose to be better the next few days. πŸ™‚ Can’t complain! God bless you as you keep us uplifted this winter!

    1. Thank you, Debbie! Your weather sounds similar to ours. Our garden only has patches of snow left in shady spots…but I still have snow photos in my file that haven’t melted away! πŸ˜‰

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

  5. Wow, you have a million people here today, Wendy!! Great short poem, and photos! We’re holding our breath, down here–don’t know when it might rain, or snow…still mild temps during the day. God bless you and your family–love, sis Caddo

    1. I hope you don’t get snow, Caddo, as I know that you do a lot of walking. It’s mild here too. I’m itching to putter outside in the garden now that I’m much better. There’s always some little thing I can do out there and I love the fresh air. Stay safe & warm dear sis! Hugs!

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

  6. Beautiful picture and Haiku! We’re having unusually warm weather here in South Central Alaska, and these old bones are loving it! Sharing God’s goodness makes everyday a blessing. Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day!

    1. Thank you, Amber! I sure know what you mean by old bones loving warmth…I’m buddies with my hot water bottle. πŸ˜‰ And you are right – God is good all the time! I’m glad you are having a break from the cold. It is sure beautiful country up where you live.

      Blessings dear new friend ~ Wendy xo

  7. looking at your winter posts makes me miss snow…i know most of you out there are already fed up with it but for us who lives in tropical islands still get so eager to see snow…hope to experience this again on my next winter trip….

  8. Every season has it’s place. Though our warmer temps this winter make it seem as if spring will arrive early. I do like looking out the window on clear nights and seeing the stars.

    1. I agree with you about it being nice to see stars on a clear night. We have a lot of trees, so I need to go outside to see any twinkling stars. When I let the dog into the run, I often walk around in the dark observing the sky until he barks to be let out…

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy πŸ™‚
