Snowy Amish Country

This year there has been a much larger snowfall than usual in Amish country. I have been going down there regularly for many years and this is the first year I have been snowed 'in' and then snowed 'out'. The snow on the corn shocks was beautiful as we drove down. It was a Saturday instead of Friday. The roads were too bad to come on our regularly scheduled day.

The cows were content in the gently falling snow. They just kept munching away.

The snow kept falling and this cow wanted to stay in the barn.

Mr Boots stopped to pet the farm cat. She is a very affectionate cat and even comes when the farmer's wife calls.

This is the real reason we are late getting home occasionally. Michelle likes to get the pony cart out and drive it around. She goes up to the chicken house and gathers eggs or just up and down the driveway if there is nothing to do. The winter is a beautiful time of year on a farm. The quiet is profound. The contrast between light and dark is stark. It reminds one of the contrast between God's righteousness and our lives. Thank God for His salvation to us.
