Be Still

I have often said that winter in Michigan is like living inside a snow globe.  The past few days have been frosty white and penetrating blue.  I could not get over the color of the sky yesterday against all the white.  Winter is best displayed in sunshine.  This morning everything is glittering like diamonds. The more snow we get, the quieter it becomes.  It feels like God is gently shushing us, telling us to "Be still and know that I am God".  Looking at it with a quilter's eye, I see color and texture, light and dark. It makes me want to sew with blue, gray and white.  I finished my scrappy quilt along quilt top and plan on taking pictures of it in the snow and sunshine for you.  Sweet blessings today, friends!

He has made me glad,


  1. I love the winter days because of this. It is such a good time for rest.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. All is calm, all is bright......

  3. What a beautiful quilt that would make, those winter colors! Thanks for the respite.

  5. Your pictures are very beautiful, but I just don't think I could take all that cold weather.

    1. I have a hard time with all the cold weather also! It's days like today that keep me going until spring. Most days are grey and that can really bring one down!

  6. So breathtakingly beautiful---I can hear the 'stillness'---snow to me is magical---thank you for sharing these with us.

  7. Such calm, beautiful pics - I love the quietness of snow too.
    Happy weekend, stay warm :-)

  11. Lovely pictures, Renee. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Beautiful pictures. That "quiet" is the first thing I notice when I wake up to a snow.

    But we have had a very mild winter and just a tiny dusting of snow. I want a snowglobe world just one morning.
