The Fog

I know not every part of Winter is enjoyable.  However, neither are all parts of the other seasons.  What I do love are the days when it's cold enough to have a fire going, the shorter days that allow for the family to all be in the house together much earlier in the evenings, and the slower pace of life on the ranch.

I also believe it has a certain beauty, especially on the days like this, where a layer of ice coats every thing perfectly and fog hugs the horizon.  



It makes the animals stand out and their unique colors more appreciated...


and creates a stillness that I believe magnificent.

There is something about these rare days of beauty that make me truly stop and see the tiniest of details surrounding us...
...while appreciating His hand in everything.

Remember those tumbleweeds I wrote about here?  Well, look at them now...

 ...and a few more scenes from our surroundings.




Sometimes the fog in life can keep us from seeing its beauty.  Other times, it only enhances it.  Here's to hoping there's a little fog in your life today.
