{ Brrrrr..... } Waiting for Spring in Narnia....

In the wardrobe a fur coat was found
and we stepped through the woods into a land filled with snow 
(the C.S. Lewis story could have had an Afghan Hound in it don't you think?)
 Oh Aslan, how we need you to come! 
Winters snow has covered our footprints
like the grace of God our errors
and the stain shall be erased ... made white as winters snow
when we place our trust in the One who made it all
Soon, the winter will be past
the rains over and gone
and the sound
of birds
break forth in singing over Narnia!

Beautiful post of prose and photos.
Here we have not had any winter yet. Very unusual to say the least. Tahoe ski resorts are crying without snow. Serene Sunday...

You have fresh snow too Violet. Yours looks so much prettier than mine. Must be the sweet fur baby and the poem : )
We have a couple ft. of snow. It's all white and very very cold. -24 tonight. No fur babies outside for longer than 4 minutes : )
Have a great week Violet.

Oh, Violet, you have presented a post that would warm the heart of God and C.S. Lewis, as it did mine. "...Whiter than snow". Yes, Thank God for that!!
And Dazzle looks right at home in Narnia!
No real snow here yet :(. But it does make life easier for those who have to go out to work each morning.
I owe you an email...coming soon!!
Luv you,

Oh goodness Violet - the photos are spectacular, but when I saw the watercolor print at the bottom of the post, I melted. So lovely and inspiring.

My mother and Sister were visiting recently and I took them to your website to show off your talents! :)

Hugs friend,
