One Snowy Night

                 A Winter Dawn
                              by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Above the marge of night a star still shines,
And on the frosty hills the sombre pines
Harbor an eerie wind that crooneth low
Over the glimmering wastes of virgin snow.

Through the pale arch of orient the morn
Comes in a milk-white splendor newly-born,
A sword of crimson cuts in twain the gray
Banners of shadow hosts, and lo, the day!

The night after the snow, 
the sledders stayed out
 until the moon came up…

"It is good to praise the Lord
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
 proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.”

Psalm 92:1-3

Engagement Photos -- Ethan & Rachael

My Little Brother is getting married!
The lady in his life is a lovely girl by the name of Rachael.
Soon after they announced their engagement in December,
Ethan called and asked if I’d like to do their engagement photos.
Of course I would!

 So we headed out on a Sunday afternoon, tromping through the fields.
Ethan and Rachael are madly in love,
so maybe they didn’t even notice the cold
– at least they didn’t complain.

 I asked Ethan if there was something that would exemplify
things they’ve done during their courtship.
He mentioned milking lots of cows together.
No, not what I was looking for.
Sitting on rocks or logs drinking lots of tea.
There, that’s better!
And playing Othelo.
(This particular game edition dates back to the early
 years of my parent’s relationship – 
around 35 years ago.)

The afternoon left, and evening brought
           the moon as we were finishing pictures.

I love you both,
Ethan and Rachael,
and pray God’s grace and power
will be full in your lives.

With a little splash of purple.
