Country Christmas...No Snow

On Christmas day I took a walk in the woods behind our home, down to the creek that runs across the corner of our lot. I hadn't been down there for a couple of months. Usually by this time the snow has made the path impassible but we have no snow and I was able to get down to the creek.

When I got there I saw that I had left our Adirondack chair down there last fall so I sat down and thought deeply for awhile. The sound of the "babbling brook" was music to my ears.

Normally I would be disappointed if we didn't get a White Christmas but not this year. Christmas came and went so quickly! And remember...the days are already getting longer! Hallelujah!

Regardless of the weather, we have a God who care for His own and I have much to thank Him for as we approach the end of another year. It's been a difficult year but the Lord has been faithful and good. He walked with this pilgrim each step of the way even when I wondered what was going to happen next.

I'm reminded afresh of the verse which my Grandma Fisher taught me many years ago:

"The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knoweth them that trust in Him." - Nahum 1:7


  1. So nice David...The days ARE getting longer.
    Soon I will be able to take sunset pictures again at Katy's on a Tuesday evening and HER babbling brook will be filled with the sounds of little ducks chatting to their mother as they are swimming downstream toward the lake to to take a morning bath!

    Those little baby ducks trust completely in their mother, as they follow her, and THAT is how we trust in our God!...from Terry

  2. Love that snow scene. Grandma Fisher was wise indeed. I'll have to remember Nahum 1:7--another good one.

  3. why yes, David, that is a nice picture, looks just like home! :)
