Winter's solitude

Winter has its own special brand of solitude.  The blanket of snow brings a quiet to the season. It allows one to be still... To reflect on what matters...

Hope all of you are enjoying this quiet time of the year. " quietness and trust is your strength."  Isaiah 30:15 b (NIV) Have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie


When a winter storm is on its way here are some of my necessities. Something hot to drink... A warm fire... and last but not least something good to read.
