This photo was taken the January before my husband passed away. It hadn't snowed in our area of the Willamette Valley for over seven years.
It was such a beautiful sight--almost two feet of snow fell, and we enjoyed the beauty of that snowfall for several weeks before it melted away.
Speeking of random challenges, I have been without heat, except for the wood stove for almost three weeks. It was FREEZING! I was SO grateful for the two cords of wood dropped on my driveway. God knew I would need to keep warm with wood.
Yesterday the Furnace guys came and installed a new gas furnace. It is warm in here--and I am SO grateful--as grateful as anyone can be when they've been cold for so long.
Blessings and joy to you this Holiday Season. Merry Christmas!
