The Calm After The Storm

Hello, dear ones!
The snow has stopped falling and the sun is shining brightly - oh what glorious beauty!
I thought I would share a few more photos of the lovely snow
since yesterday's quality was lacking.
So bundle up and take a walk with me in my yard...I'll even bring some hot cocoa :)










Shall we make some snow angels? :)
I hope you're enjoying your weekend, sweet friends! 

"This is my Father's world, 
and to my listening ears all nature sings 
and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world!
I rest me in the thought of rocks and trees, of skies and seas- 
His hand the wonders wrought."
~ Maltbie D. Babcock ~

Dear Stephanie,

Thank you for your sweet comment! I hope you have a blessed weekend too. The photos of the snow are so very lovely, and "This is My Father's World" is one of my favorite hymns.

May you have a blessed and cozy weekend!

I adore the lyrics to this hymn and your amazing pictures are perfect teamed with the song. The little bridge is precious.
Thank you for sharing the gorgeous beauty around your home today.

Stunning photos! There is so much snow. We don't have that much here. Our drifts are high because the wind has pushed all the snow there. I have many bare patches of lawn.

Beautiful pictures! We've had a lot of snow as well, but today was beautiful and almost 60 degrees! My husband and I even saw 5 robins while we were out today. Hopefully Spring isn't too far off. Hope you're enjoying your weekend :)

I sent you an email invite to my private blog. Have a lovely evening.

I love seeing all the snow on the trees with our beautiful Colorado blue skies. We don't have that much snow, and the roads are clear now for the most part. Have a wonderful Sunday.♥♫

Your pictures are gorgeous. I love to visit places with snow. This week was a cold week for us and today it was in the 70's. Thank you so much for sharing. I think snow angels sounds perfect.

That is a winter wonderland. Majestic.

Debbie Harris said...

Such beautiful pictures Stephanie! Those Colorado blue skies really are something with the white snow.
I always enjoy your photos with the bridge.
I enjoyed my walk with you, now for a cup of tea. Your father can have the cocoa. :-)
I enjoyed yesterdays pictures as well. Especially the little one jumping into the snow.
Blessings!

Oh Stephanie,would I love to be walking in that lovely cold snow right now. We are sweltering in mid 40s c heat and have been for a week and another week to come. Hottest Jan/Feb since 1908 x

Elizabethd said...

What unbelievable photos!

Maria said...

Wow! Gorgeous photos of the snow! It's snowing once again here in NW Ohio! We had a record snowfall last month of 40 inches. It's so pretty, but I will welcome spring with open arms...lol! Take care...blessings to you!

Jazzmin said...

Stephanie,
What a beautiful wonderland God has blessed you with! Oh, that snow is so gorgeous and breathtaking. I can't tell you how hard I tried to close my eyes and imagine I was there. If only I had Dorothy's ruby slippers! ;) And your sweet log home looks so dreamy, just like a scene from Little House in the Big Woods.

Enjoy the miraculous beauty around you! Thank you for this beautiful post- such a blessing to me today, adding a cheer to my day just to look upon this loveliness.

My blessing of a friend, I am also so thankful for you! I could not be more honest when I tell you that each time I see a new post up from you, I get excited because I know you will have something wonderful to share. Your posts, but more than that You, are a true gift. And thank you so much also for your sweet comments- I can't tell you how much they make my heart smile each time I read them.

Love and hugs to you!!

Have a blessed Lord's Day♥

Jeanna said...

I'm speechless (almost), your place is just beautiful Stephanie. Thank you for going out and taking such wonderful pictures.

SarahGeorge said...

Awesome!! Stephanie. "This is my father's world" how true is that!!

Robyn said...

It must feel so good to be all cuddled in your new beautiful home while it all the snow falls, Stephanie! Those photos prove once again that you should be taking pics for a living! Fantastic, my friend. Thanks so much for the visual splendor on this freezing cold Monday morning! lol

Lauren Nelson said...

So beautiful! For this Texas girl, it is hard to even imagine snow like that. We had sleet on and off all day yesterday and even snow for about five minutes, but nothing even close to your winter wonderland! Stay warm!

Conniecrafter said...

Such Beautiful and peaceful photo's, Love the blue skies in there, you have a wonderful area to live in, thanks for sharing... and stay warm ;)

living from glory to glory said...

Dear Friend, I think the song This is my Father's World is what comes from my heart every time I see His wonders.
Your new home is perfect... I think it fits you all to a tee.
I can see you so cozy and warm and as snug as a bug in a rug.
The snow appears to be as the train of His robe...
Lovely and Peaceful!
Blessings and Love, Roxy

Laura Lane said...

Oh my! How absolutely beautiful! Your home and view is so lovely.
Have a terrific day,

Mom E. said...

The pictures of your property are so beautiful. I wish it would snow here. There is a chane of it this weekend. Since Hubby and I have been sick, it would be NICE if we could look out the window at beautiful scenery, while I cough! LOL
hugs,
Betsy

Ida said...

Wow that is a bunch of snow. Your shots are so pretty. We've had snow but not that much and for that I'm thankful because I really don't like being out in snow all that much. It's COLD here this week so I'm staying inside where it's warm.

Kate M said...

What beautiful pictures! I have really enjoyed visiting your yard, and felt really at home!! What a beautiful location. We have been lucky and not had snow yet, but we are suffering with heavy, consistent rain. The South of England has suffered serious flooding, and coastal defences have been breached in places. In the North (where we are) we have been luckier, at home the worst we have suffered is driving rain getting through the double glazing on one of our windows - quite minor in the grand scheme of things.
Do take care and God bless
Kate
