The bright blue sky has been transformed to usher in another blanket of beautiful snow!
It is a NEW day, another opportunity to count our many blessings!

The birds are happily singing...

All of their needs are being cared for...

This New Dawn Rose isn't showing her summer best today;
however she is still beautiful!

There are seasons in nature and in life...
and though she isn't at her best is just for a season!

  Are you experiencing a season in life and you feel less than your best?
Are times tough and your heart heavy?

When you find yourself in a season of life that has brought more than you hoped for and more than you feel capable to handle...

"Cast all your cares on Him, because He cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7

Choose to count your blessings and give thanks for them all...

"I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart."  Psalm 86:12             

For when we choose to cast our cares on Him,
When we count our blessings,
When we give thanks...

He shows Himself faithful; providing us a new day, new joy and hope for the future... 
And even though times are tough, you will want to feel the cool breeze as you run forward with all your heart!

You will again experience the
desire to sing & fluff your feathers...
(maybe just your tail feathers to start, but in time...)

Your heart will be lifted as you remember...
Tomorrow is coming ... YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND LOVED!

 Blessings to You,

Please comment so I'll know you visited and I'd be honored to have you follow...hope to see you again soon!

  1. Aw, Cindy! Your post does my heart good. We have a bird feeder and bath in our backyard, and we also have two Cardinal couples. We call the larger of the couples the old couple, and the smaller the young couple. I love how protective the mails are of the females. They fuss at them if they get too close to the obnoxious bluejay! We are under ice here in Central Alabama. Our girls are out of school (as they were yesterday). We do not have equipment to handle any snow or ice here. I think Birmingham has only one snow plow! Stay warm!

  26. Wonderful post Cindy! We were just talking to our son about God knowing the number of hairs on his head (which he thought was pretty funny) and how if He provides for the birds then can't we trust Him to provide and care for us? I need to be reminded of that myself so many times and I appreciate you bringing this truth to life with your gorgeous photos and inspiring words. Thanks so much for sharing it at Inspiration Friday!
