Have you ever taken the time to enjoy the simple things in life God has created for us?  I know a lot of people don't like winter because of the cold...then in summer they complain it's too hot!  You gotta take the good out of every situation and make the best of it!

For instance, you'd never see beautiful hoar frost on the trees on a hot summer's day would you?  Look up at the sky through the trees next time it's snowed or been a foggy winter's night.

Admire the view of the beach and think of the cold winter yet to come...you'll enjoy the heat a whole lot more, right ;)

This little fellow has no trouble surviving the winter months looking for food, and you think it's too cold?  His eye is on the sparrow, so of course He watches over you too!
 And some more lovely hoarfrost on an icicle!  Did I mention I love winter!  Even if it gets to -50 with windchill!

Summer brings delicious strawberries....and many like to eat that with non other than the cold frozen milk product. LOL

A beautiful spring sunset reminds us that God is the creator of the most beautiful seasons and of nature!

Yes, some more frost!  I can't help but enjoy trying to capture the detail of hoar frost.  It was always a dream of mine and since purchasing a macro lens last winter, I had so much fun with it already!

The fall season is upon us...along with Thanksgiving.  Let's be thankful for all the seasons God has created and remember to look for the good in each one!


These are all photos from my portfolio.  We're in the midst of harvest season right now, but before we know it, the snow will be flying!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Your photos are beautiful. I agree, it is so important to stop and appreciate the present and what you have instead of always wishing for something different. Great post.

Your photos are beautiful. I love winter too, but only in pictures.
Thanks for the great reminder to have a grateful heart. I've started a gratitude journal again for just this very thing.
