familiar silhouette

Mountains become friends. They comfort with their familiar silhouette against the changing skies.They tower above us and mark the seasons better than any calendar. In the afternoon light, winter snow glows like Vanilla ice cream. Spring meadows widen as snow shrinks, patches measured by the eyes of experience. Summers distant blue haze gives way at last to the mist of autumn. Change, always change, but mountains reassure with their sameness.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. Psalm 125:2

I couldn't email you a reply to your comment on my blog, Glenda, as you are set to "no-reply blogger", so I thought I would leave you a comment here. As to the zipper bags, I encourage you to make a date with your zipper foot and give them a try. Can't promise the joy of the playground, but there's nothing like a bunch of little pouches to squirrel away trinkets and doodads, and give your inner organizer a thrill. Thanks for dropping by - your comments are always so great!
