Winter Woodland Wonders

In looking closely at my woodland even in the winter I find beauty in the little things. 

Explore where you live with open eyes and you will see God has given everyone something special near them to help look at nature more closely.  When he created nature it was for you....Just like a painting or a movie he wants you to stand back and go WOW that is beautiful, amazing and sometimes terrifying.  But it all stimulates your senses to feel.  When you learn to feel for nature, you learn to respect and care about it.

When you learn to care about it , you realize you may be doing things in life that contributes to destroying something God gave you.

So my message for the New Year
try and do your part to help preserve what
God has created for us
and learn to love unconditionally.   PB110079 

The course of nature is the  art of God.
- Edward Young PB110082

  As the pine stays green
thru out the year
May you also preserve
Gods creations
Be Green also thru
the year....

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life,
in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful implanted in the human soul.”
-  Johann Wolfgang Goethe


A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes PC050047

So wishing everyone a
New Year full of Hope for the Future
and a
Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night…
What ever it is to you…

Carrie - I'm so glad you're back! Once again, absolutely beautiful photos. I particularly like the one of the pine cones. I just love the contrast between the brown of the cones, the green of the leaves, and the crisp white of the snow.

We must be good stewards of God's wondrous creation...AMEN to that!

Hi Carrie, gladly I found I am still able to get over here. You know I thought about the southwest and your posts - how good it would be to escape this wintry weather. Glad you could stop by at WP. I'm still figuring out the navigation there I guess it's blog subscription and rss feed. I enjoy the winter scenes here how wonderful to see all this beauty even when it's freezing outside. Happy New Year to ya, Enjoy the sunshine!!!! Janae

Wow I love your photos. I want some for my walls. Do you have a website yet to sell your photos or have had any made to prints yet?
I always relax after going through your posts, it's like meditation for me. Hope you're staying cozy warm in your home this winter!
