Birthday Glitter From Heaven

How crazy is it that I asked God for sunshine and snow on my 40th birthday…

and woke up to this?!?!

Sunshine AND snow on my 40th!PINIT

MORNING GLORY!!!

God knows how sunshine delights my heart, but sunshine and snow?!?! What a rare treat! If I didn’t receive another gift all day, this would’ve been more than enough. It felt like birthday glitter from heaven! And yes, it felt like it was just for me today! {Only God can do that: make it feel so personal even though many enjoy it all at once. Don’t you love it when He does that?}

Here are my favorites from this morning’s beauty hunt around the farm. I’m especially smitten with the “sheep in the snow” shots. I’ve been waiting for those all winter!

I thought of you as I hunted for beauty in this morning’s sparkling light. I prayed that your heart might be delighted by beauty, too. Wherever you are, I know there’s a glimpse of “just for you” glory waiting to be found. Wishing you wonder and joy as you go hunting for it!

Much love,

P.S. My husband is finishing a special box of letters…many of them from YOU! I can’t wait to read every word! Thank you in advance…from the bottom of my joy-filled heart!
