Tidbits From Our Trip... Part 1

Since I have so many photos,
I thought it would be best to share them in different posts.
In this post, I wanted to share some of the
beautiful sights the Lord blessed us with...



On our way... through the mountains...

It may just look like rock but what beauty is in it!



The smoke/fog that lay over the mountains was breathtaking!


After getting into the mountains,
we were met with freezing rain...


and with it came a beautiful coat of snow...

A wonderful winter wonderland!



When we got out of the mountains, the snow had stopped

and there was no snow until we reached Michigan.
When we were about half an hour away from our destination,
the snow began, again, and lots of it...













It snowed every day we were there
(except one, which was rain/sleet).
It was such a blessing!!


(This is what we had to tread through to see my brother's house)




A view after my beloved shoveled the driveway.




A sight of icy Lake Huron


And more beautiful snow...








Living in the southeast for many years, snowfall is very rare.
In fact, we've only experienced one and it was last month.
The only time we get to see snow is when we travel
north in the wintertime.
The children and I were praying for snow during our visit
and the Lord, truly, provided above and beyond
what we had asked.
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly
above all that we ask or think..." ~ Ephesians 3:20
Snow! EVERY day! What a blessing! Ü


Scripture that filled my heart and mind
as I was seeing and loving all that snow...

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
~ Isaiah 1:18

It's beautiful! It looked like our trip to Michigan. I didn't think to take pictures along the way - and since we drove most of the way at night, we wouldn't have gotten many good pictures anyway.

Glad you enjoyed your trip!

I'm jealous now. LOL! We live in the Southeast too and rarely see snow. We have to drive up to the mountains to see snow. The pictures were indeed breathtaking.

Glad you had your prayers answered for snow, although I don't know if the people of MI appreciated it. lol
