Diamonds On The Trees

Sweet friends, you spoil me! I hardly know where I'm headed with this new thing, yet you cheer me on and say you'll follow. I don't deserve you, but I sure am thankful for you! As soon as I get past the technical challenges of setting up a new blog, I'll start sharing beauty there. {Can't wait to tell you about the new name!}

But in the mean time, there's beauty to share today...right here. This crazy winter weather has resulted in a peculiar glory: diamonds on the trees!




Oh, and you should see the hills...icy tops with evergreen bottoms! {Wish I had my camera in the car.} And right now at this very moment, as the temperature rises, the ice diamonds are cracking and popping. The trees are still as can be, but noisy. It's the wildest thing!

What kind of peculiar beauty are you seeing today?

    1. Thank you, Judy. I so enjoyed sharing the details of design in my home when I lived in Houston, but the desire just hasn't been there since moving. Farm life has changed things in more ways than one! I'll probably keep LLH Designs open, but won't post there much longer.

  2. Your diamonds were my frozen tear drops when I looked at a similar picture of a tree outside my window on a cold dreary day in Dallas with a heart heavy from the death of our son a few months earlier. Part of my journal entry: "The frozen tear drops will be wiped away by the warmth of the sun, just as my tears are gently wiped away by the loving hand of the “Son”. I love the thought of the frozen drops of rain being diamonds. Isn't God amazingly awesome at how He uses the beauty of his creation to speak to each one of us with what we need to keep going! Love your journaling keep it up.

    1. Oh, dear one, those were tears on your trees for sure. The loss of a child is like no other loss. I am so sorry. I am comforted by the thought of God gently wiping away every tear, but also by the thought of His catching ever tear. They matter to Him. Every tear you've cried for your son will be honored and redeemed. So much love to you.

  4. Diamonds, yes, we have them too... on our large pond. Every afternoon, the sun descends to an angle that causes the light to glisten like a queen's tiara on the surface of the water. It only lasts about 30 minutes. Whoever sees the dazzling show first traditionally alerts the household with yells of, "We're RICH! Diamonds on the water!" Where your treasure is...... Best wishes!
