The Loveliest Light




It is snowing here. No - I mean it is REALLY snowing here. The kind of snow that blows and drifts - so much so that you feel the wind is going right through you. The kind of snow that makes you want to grab a blanket - and everyone you love - and huddle together with a big bowl of popcorn. The kind of snow that makes you want to go...well...nowhere. But unfortunately, like so many others, my family must go out tonight. We have errands and tutoring and all manner of things to get to. And so we'll don our coats, hats, gloves, scarves, boots and we will brave the weather and this dreadful cold. And at the end of it all - if we're very lucky - we'll come back to that soft, glowing, lovely light...the light that beckons us and bids us "Welcome back..you are safe..." The loveliest light of all...the light of home.

Gorgeous photo. The textures are perfect. But your journaling is exquisite! I used to teach journaling for digital scrapbooking and yours is delicious!!

Hope you get out and home safely.
