Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4
--------------------------------------------------------
Fog in deep mourning
At the break of dawn
In rain drops it weeps
Splashing o'er the lawn.

Mist forms on tendrils
To gather moist dew;
On the driveway it drips
And slips into one's shoe.

But these are God's tears
Washing today life's road
He cleanseth the soles'
Whilst He carries our load.

Poetry by me, AJP
-------------------------------------------

As you can see some of our snow has melted off from our driveway and it is getting quite muddy in fact. But truthfully I welcome the mud as it brings us closer to spring.

It was a very dense fog when I shot this picture this morning...My shoes were filled with water and mud by the time I got home:)

Thank you so much Michael Ball for the spotlight. Please visit his fantastic site!

    This is a great fog photo. I might wish we had more snow here, but I don't like the end of it where things get muddy and the snow is all dirty. We are getting some fog here also. Tonight we ate supper at a restaurant overlooking the Houston Ship Channel. It is interesting to watch the ships go by, but tonight a thick fog rolled in and we couldn't see a single ship. I imagine they all stopped and dropped anchor until the fog lifted.
