With the coming of the advent season our first snow has fallen.
Even an inch of snow makes the world a brighter place…
…transfiguring the common fern and salal… and making neighborhood houses look somehow more cozy.
It’s time once again to pull out Christmas things and think of gifts and greetings to be sent…
Meanwhile our willow marks the season with her fast falling leaves
And the backyard is all frosted wonder…
It’s the light shining through that makes it all so glorious isn’t it?
“…the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,
on them a light has dawned.” (Mt.4:16)
