White New Year!








An end-of-the year storm swept through our state of Arizona leaving five to seven inches of snow yesterday, New Year's Eve.  We get excited when that kind of thing happens because it is rare and all we usually receive is a dusting on the trees making them look refreshed and powdered.  But this white deluge was different!   Huge flakes fell all day and this morning, we woke up to a crisp winter wonderland!  Mother Nature outdid herself with a beautiful entry into 2015!  It brings out the kid in you, and my daughter sent me a photo of the snowman she created for fun!





















Here I am by the grapevine wishing you a very prosperous and Happy New Year!  May God’s grace and blessings sweep over you like the freshly fallen snow!

  3. I like looking at snow, but not walking through it. Blessedly we had beautiful clear skies and I walked to visit friends in the neighborhood. Thanks so much for visiting Buttercup's and happy wishes for 2015.

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by the other day. It's so nice to know that you're out there. I love your snow pictures. I like seeing not feeling. LOL!
    It's been in the 80's here for quite a while now. I'm not complaining.

  9. lovely photos, and lovely start of the year post. Indeed so refreshing and so uplifting. I particularly loved the verse you quoted with your photo above... it was the word spoken to me by our Abba father as well for this year!

  10. Hi Mary! Happy New Year! That snow is just amazing! I used to live in Tucson, and we never saw snow on the ground, just in the mountains. Looks like you were ready for it though :)

    May you have a wonderful and graced new year. I hope we will walk this time together, encouraging and sharing!
    Blessings,
    Ceil
