I love stumbling on signs from above. Those little things that you see that remind you that God is here. Well, this one isn’t too little of a sign so maybe I’m needing a big one to get the point across that I’ve been a little distant and need to get back on track with my faith.   Kind of like those V-9 commercials when they smack you on your head for not eating your veggies.  Things have been very hard lately and I’ve really been struggling with putting my faith in God and letting Him see me through these rocky paths I’m currently on.

Every time I drive back from my son’s school I see this piece of land. The first time I noticed it I almost drove off the road. This is out in the country, so that could have been a bad experience! The first time I saw it was before our first real snow here. I glanced over the cornfields as I was driving home and there it was.   A huge cross.  The way that the land was laying and the cut stalks of corn created it in the middle of this huge field.  After it snowed a little bit, it really showed up even better.  So one day I finally remembered to take my camera with me and after I dropped my son off one very cold and blustery morning, I stopped in the middle of the road and snapped this photo.

It’s my special cross. I think it’s there for me to see. It’s a reminder that I’m not alone. That God IS here. Even though I feel so distant from Him right now and He’s right there for me. Like always.

ice, ice baby

So our part of the wide, wide world was hit by a nice ice storm today. After all was said and done, we were lucky enough to have had no damage to our little trees, even though there were really starting to get droopy from the weight of the ice on their branches. I was able to get some neat photos w/o having to risk stepping out on our front porch. Thank goodness for my zoom lens!

We spent Thanksgiving at my mom’s house out in the country. We woke up that morning to a light dusting of snow. It was so beautiful and I just had to take some pictures. So outside I went, camera in hand, and walked all around my mom’s little bit of land taking pictures. My city girl side was really showing when I came back inside because I had gone out there in my little ballet flats. Not too smart! I had ice, cold water squishing in between my toes! My shoes were soaking wet! Oh well, I got some nice pictures and I think that I might enlarge a few, frame them and give them to my mom for Christmas.

God Bless!
