I watched as the first morning of this New Year
slipped softly into focus through my bedroom window.
New snow... on top of old snow...
a dusting of a million tiny diamonds reflecting the light.
The view from my lens could not begin to capture the beauty
I could see with my eyes...
like fairy dust.
Magical... I said out loud.
As my room began to brighten
I looked heavenward just as the light of the sun
began to escape from behind the Winter clouds.
I watched as sunlight stretched forth to welcome the new day
and I felt peace and assurance.
A new day,
a New Year...
with so much promise.
Oh the possibilities!
God is in his Heaven
and all will be right in the world.
Let's be like a million sparkling diamondsreflecting HIS light.
