Nathan's Ontario Sunrise

This picture of a beautiful Ontario sunrise was created by David Fisher's son Nathan[pilgrimscribblings].

Now, I have been after that David for a few months to send me an Ontario sunrise but I do believe that he has been waiting for the best!

What photographed sunrise could compare to this young artists painting?
What better than seen through the eyes of a child?

Thank you so much for this painting Nathan Fisher!
The water is so blue!!
My favorite color!
It makes me think of Heaven!

When the day comes that we meet you in person, I surely do hope that you will give me your autograph!

I will start out this Saturday morning as I go to work with this "sunrise" verse from the Bible..

Psalm 5:3....."My voice thou shalt hear in the morning,O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up."

Oh Where Oh Where Has That Little Jel Gone?

I spotted this little dog named, Adi on Jim's blog......NOT so hard to do!
That jimmiehov's blog is just full of this little celebrity!

Anyways, she looked so sad and lonely that I thought it might be a help if I put her on one of our good friend's pictures.

This verse, in particular is Jel's favorite!
This picture, in particular is Jel's.
This dog, in particular is Jim's dog.
I, in particular am a person with light fingers!

I just snuck down to Jel's site and lifted her photo right out!
Then I went to Jim's blog and lifted Adi right out!

I have put them all together and NOW I am right out

I mean I am right out of here because I am on my way to work!!!

PS..Now most of my favorite links KNOW Jel...She is just everybody's ray of sunshine and we haven't heard tell where she is lately!

Have a nice day everybody!!!.......Love Terry

Sorry Noel Lewis...No Snow...Just Ice!

Yesterday Welland was a sort of winter wonderland.
Noel Lewis, one of my good blog friends wanted me to ship him some snow down to Texas, but unfortunately before I read his request, rain had moved in and taken all of the white stuff away, replacing it with clear silver ice!

Welland and most of Southern Ontario is now an ICY wonderland!

The little red car hasn't seen an ice storm for two years and he wonders what has happened overnight!

The little birds are not pleased at all with their bird feeder ice rink even though it is decorated with a fancy frozen lace around the edge..
At least I don't THINK they are happy.
I never spotted a one of them taking an after dinner skate!

The hanging tree branches are laden with a heavy layer of the frozen rain drops.

This white birch branch is living up to its Canadian Song name..."Land of the Silver Birch", but it really looks like it will be shortly laying on the sidewalk beside its' fallen companion.

Even though it is freezing, the picture of this tree leaning toward our house seeking for a little warmth is almost pretty.

Frozen tree!
Frozen lawn!!
Frozen bird feeder!!!
Frozen bird bath!!!!
What is a person to do?
Well... I will just have to order a large bucket of sunshine from my friend, Jel and use it to melt all of this...If only I could FIND her!

The tree next door to us is, if you can believe it a lilac tree!
I am afraid that with the warm weather we have been getting that harm will come to the tender buds that have already appeared on it's bush and we will not have the sweet fragrance of the purple flowers this year.

By the end of the day as we traveled down Niagara Street, I snapped this picture.
It seems that this little Southern Ontario town will be locked into ice and will be like one giant refrigerator for at least another day.

.... And then I suppose, the snow will come!

For Mrs. Mac And Her Little Gift, Nathan

Yesterday we received our first snow fall of the year and I must admit, even to Mrs. Mac that is was just lovely!

As I drove down the lane way to work, I just had to exclaim over the loveliness of the peaceful scene.

As I sit here this first day of another week, the chorus to the song, "Whiter Than the Snow", has been playing in my heart,

"Whiter than the snow!
Whiter than the snow!
Wash me in the Blood of the Lamb,
And I shall be whiter than snow!"

Isaiah 1:18...."Come now and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

What a way to start the Lord's day!!

Wishing everyone of you a Blessed Lord's Day...........Love Terry
