Hello book friends! Stopping by to share a few pictures of our snowy Texas Sunday yesterday. The weather people said it had been over 15 years since we had gotten as much as fell yesterday - 2004 I believe. I know many of you get a whole season of snow, but we here in Central Texas get very little. There are occasions though. It kept snowing for several more hours after I took these pictures, but it's melting this morning and the sun is out. It won't stay around long and the best part is that it was almost exclusively a snow event and not an ice or sleet event (which is more likely for our part of the world). It was beautiful and peaceful to see those big, big flakes falling. Just wonderful. I am grateful for peaceful snow.
After all the turmoil, sorrow, stress and upset of the last few months and especially more recently, I decided that 2021 will be the year that I focus on 'peaceful reading'. Not completely sure what that will mean for me. I have made a point of getting back to some devotional time for myself. And I've recently read a book or two that I had read many years ago and that reminded me of aspects of the faith that I hold dear to my heart and that I try to live by. I don't talk about that much on this blog, but I am a person of lifelong faith in God.
I was made very, very sad this last week hearing of a dear friend who is quite ill in the hospital (not with COVID). She had been diagnosed with dementia a couple of years ago and that condition was progressing very slowly. She is still at home with her husband, but this last year has been quite hard on both of them. Her hospital time now is much worse because he can't be with her and she's often confused about where she is and where he is. All I can do right now is pray for both of them. So I am. And trying to turn my mind to 'peaceful' things. Take care, please, all of you and I pray for peaceful thoughts and actions to help all of us and our world.
