Winter Wonderland

After a few days of fog and high humidity

The moisture on the trees yielded to the freezing temperatures

and turned our little North Dakota town into a wintry wonderland
It was three days of magic for this West Texas Cowgirl
The stillness and silence drew me into my fur lined boots

and out the door to get up close and personal with this new adventure

While my Southern friends were battling sandstorms 
and dodging tumble weeds,
I walked in the park

And I walked in the dark

Then a gentle breeze blew by

and gently sent the ice crystals to join their snow cousins on the ground
and just like that...
the magic was over.
What a wonderfilled experience for me.

"He is the one who sends snow like wool and scatters frost like ashes."
(Psalm 147:16)
