‘…Christmas in the Northwest is a gift God wrapped in green.’Christmas in the Northwest, always a gift of God, and again this year it will be wrapped in green here at our home near Puget Sound. To satisfy our craving for snow, my husband and I drove to the summit of Snoqualmie Pass today, to play with Lucy our dog in the snow and allow me a few minutes to take a few photos. The cold, elevation and my asthma made walking a chore, but it was gorgeous! I took an ornament with me, just in case I found the perfect spot for a wintry scene. Thankfully, we found just the place with the sun peeping through the clouds for a few minutes to provide the brightly lit hills behind the snowy alpine trees.
‘Christmas in the Northwest,’ by Brenda White is a favorite Christmas song of mine. If you have time, click the ‘play’ button on the player and listen to a beautiful song for a couple minutes, I think you’ll be blessed. [Disclosure: The MP3 shared with you was purchased.]
Hoping you and yours have a wonderful day together to celebrate the meaning of Christmas ~ faith, family and friends.
I thought it might be fun to open a two day only Christmas meme, if you have the time and would like to share, I’d enjoy seeing your seasonal cheer!
Merry Christmas and Be Blessed!
