Both of my parents are sick. They're recovering well, but it's been a quiet past couple of days at home. Kaylee (our dog) has entertained herself with snow-eating, and then otherwise sticks close to Mom, as she usually does. Meanwhile, I've been the homemaker and cook, hoping that eases their burden a bit as they rest up for this upcoming week.
It was a beautiful day yesterday, and I needed to run out to get some groceries. I love grocery shopping, and it's all the more fun when I get to drive down to town, instead of carrying my bags on Chicago public transportation (though that too is nostalgic and I usually enjoyed that in its own way too). I must have missed the walking aspect of grocery shopping though, because I had the biggest desire to go outside on this day and soak up the lovely January sunshine, despite the frigid cold and not having a buddy to go with. I decided to go out anyways!
My Czech home can be smoggy, it can be rainy, gray, and sometimes there are weeks when we don't see the sun for more than 10 minutes a day. This home can also be spectacular, displaying all of its majestic beauty when the sun reflects off of the sparkling snow on a regular January day.
"The cold never bothered me anyway," right? (That's the best I can do for a Frozen correlation!)
I hope these photos can bring you to worship of our incredible Creator. He's the one who is most spectacular of all.
