isn't this a neat photo? it's another that i snapped along the way to the city ... the scene has a beauty to it - even though it is stark in nature ... it almost looks like a black & white painting ...
Of winter's lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer's secret
Deep down within its heart.
~Charles G. Stater
to me, winter portrays a life that doesn't have Christ in it ... or one who hasn't grown in the Lord ... it can be beautiful and admired, yet there will always be something missing ... when Jesus enters - spring begins and makes the soul alive with blossoms that usher in the wild and wonderful colours of summer ...
