Where the Bayous Meet the Mountains

I guess dreams really do come true...

We awoke on Christmas morning to several inches of snow. Truly a white Christmas.

Here are early Christmas morning pictures.

As someone who was raised in the South all the little things about snow were foreign to me until I moved to Colorado. Things like how quiet everything becomes with a layer of snow on the ground, how pristine everything looks, how much of a pain it is to shovel so the dog will have a potty path, how driving on solid ice is possible, but a challenge.

Here are the photos of our quiet Christmas morning. As Scott and I shoveled that path, I took the time to thank God for sending his Son for us.

The stillness of the morning reminded me of one of my favorite verses: "Be still and know, that I am God." Psalm 46:10

Hope's Subaru parked in the driveway. Just a little cover!

One of our outside Christmas trees. So much snow the branches are drooping.

Our Labradoodle loving the snow. We had a hard time catching her to bring her back into the house. We nicknamed her--Chili the Snow Dog!

I pray that y'all had a wonderful Christmas day where ever you were and that God's peace surrounded you and your family!

Thanks for visiting Lagniappe
