December 13
We had a very severe ice storm that wreaked havoc for many citizens, as great numbers were without power and trees were down across many roads. However, it WAS beautiful! A couple mornings after the storm, I drove to the house of some friends.

The drive over there was incredibly, stunningly, gorgeous. As I got closer to their house, there was more and more ice covering everything. To say that it was dazzling like crystal, is a trite understatement. Absolutely everything in nature was glazed with sparkling ice. The trees drooped, some of them gracefully, some of them in grotesque globs, their branches laden with jewels. The brushy places, rather than being disorganized thickets, were bouquets of silver. It’s amazing how artistic the Lord made nature to be. I thoroughly enjoyed the drive over, and thankfully the roads were not slippery, for the most part, because I could gaze all the more at the enchanting beauty. I stopped several times to take pictures.

"Out of the south comes the storm, And out of the north the cold. "From the breath of God ice is made, And the expanse of the waters is frozen.
(Job 37:9-10)

He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes. He casts forth His ice as fragments; Who can stand before His cold?
(Psa 147:16-17)
