Chill and fog greeted us on Thanksgiving morning. At this time in Maine, it is not unusual to see the sun a little dimmer, having difficulty to spread its light.
Hard frost covered the ground.
It seemed as if stars turned to powder and sprinkled everything on their path. They outlined the grass and leaves and flowers with shimmering rocks. For the first hours in the day, it looked like jewels adorned the yard.
Humble spider would be hardpressed to find that its lowly silk has turned into a string of diamonds.
When the sun finally shone, the gems gave way to little glass orbs that shimmered in the sun. The dandelion puffs that carpeted the fields glittered the brightest.
What a beautiful start to the day it was.
When I thought that there could be nothing interesting in the present landscape, God made this miracle. There is always beauty even in unexpected places.
