embracing the morning

for those of you who don't live in the south,  there's nothing noteworthy about a crisp winter morning. but for those of us in this part of our world, it's enough not to be slogging through another day of torrential rain. we've had our fair share.

as i was driving my daughter to school (during which she commented that this sharing of the car wasn't as bad as she thought it would be and added that she wouldn't mind if we continued to do so . . . concentrate! don't drive off the road!! shock!!) i was captivated by the sun, the cornflower skies, the glint of frost on the naked tree branches. and i marveled at the craftsmanship of ice.

how clever, how intricate, how delicate!! and how quickly we must look, before the sun's kiss melts the artistry. how is it that God has created such beauty in something so simple as a water molecule? and such uniqueness in each formation. . . only to have it dashed in an instant by a footprint, or a warming breath or the sun's ray?

how much more He cares for us. . .

and since we are here, longer than a snowflake, let us be mindful of our time, and not waste a single minute. how precious, each moment. 

i'm thinking of you abby, and praying that you'll have many, many moments here on this earth.
