Sacred in the Ordinary - Hoar Frost

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment...

We have had an amazing November. It was beautiful and warm. We usually have snow mid November but we really had nothing. The kids wore runners and lighter winter jackets all month. Gloves and toques were optional. However, December has brought us winter weather. We finally have a small skift of snow. The temperature has dropped from highs of 8 C to -18 C within 7 days. What a difference. However, the one part of winter that I enjoy about living in the prairies is the hoar frost. I love the way it looks. Everything is covered with a thick frost. It makes everything pretty, including the storage center across the street from my house. It reminds of how Jesus covers us with His grace and love making us shiny and new before God.

I however didn't get a picture but have found one on the net that looks similar to what I saw this morning.

Now go to My Quiet Corner and record your Sacred in the Ordinary.

It was gorgeous out yesterday! I was so disappointed this morning when I realized it was all gone.

I love your sidebar thingies - very pretty!

Beautiful! I enjoy when the sun is shining on the frost. It makes the world seem covered in diamonds.

I also appreciated the word picture you gave related to the frost and how it reminds of Jesus and what he does for us.

As always, thanks for participating! Stay warm!!
