Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland

Yesterday morning everything was covered with frosty white crystals. It had gotten foggy the night before, and when it lifted it left everything in a brilliant, glittering winter wonderland! The trees, fences, grass...everything...had been covered in little snowflakes, and it was so beautiful!

When I went out to do chores, it looked as if our horses had aged quite a bit. Their hair was covered in a frosty white, Misty looked as if she had grown a beard, and Flash looked like she put on white mascara :)

 As you have probably already guessed, this "winter wonderland" scene was more than enough reason for me to grab my camera and head outside...

 I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas! Our family did! As tradition goes, after we were all up we read the Christmas story (what would Christmas be without it?!?), and then we opened presents. Two of the presents that I got from my parents were Joyfully at Home by Jasmine Baucham and Preparing to be a Helpmeet by Debi Pearl. I was quite excited to get them, as I have heard so many young ladies recommend them! I'll let you know what I think of them after I'm done reading them...but from what I have read so far they look wonderful! After we were done with presents, we finished reading Tabitha's Travels (it's an advent story that tells of the adventures of a girl named Tabitha. It is in the same series as Jotham's Journey and Batholomew's Passage, all by Arnold Ytreeide) which we started in late November.

Joy...finding a way to be happy even when things don't go your way

May the Lord bless you in the upcoming year!
Love in Christ,


  1. The winter photos look like the ones that I have outside my home. :)
    Those books sound pretty cool! Glad that you and your family had a wonderful CHRISTmas!

  2. The snow covered land is so beautiful! It doesn't snow where I live....and your pictures make me want to take a road trip just to see some! :)

    Those books are on my list of books to read. I can't wait to get them myself!

    In Christ,

  3. Beautiful snow pictures Rebekah! I love snow. : ) Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas!


  4. Ahh... your snow pictures are beautiful! We had a little snow on Christmas. :-) It's been a long time since it snow on Christmas where I live. :-)

    I got "Joyfully at home" for Christmas too! I like it so far.

    We have Preparing to be a help meet too. That was a good book. :-)

    I hope you had a great Christmas! I did. :-)

  6. "White masacra" I like that description! =)

    I finished reading "Joyfully at Home" a few weeks ago! It was great; so encouraging and practical.
