Dusting of Love and Joy
Rejoicing in the snow that scattered its white crystals over the desert floor. A welcome back to Arizona, saved in pictures by hubby and formed in the likes of a miniature snowman in our backyard.

The snow refreshes, cleans, and covers so that every bristly bush sparkles with the Lord’s radiance. When heavenly dustings are so rare, they are treasured and appreciated. Like gentle blessings, they softly touched my hair in California briefly and followed me to Arizona.
Even our shaved-for-spring wonder dog, Chip, braved the unfamiliar turf to nose around.
“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.” Psalm 89:1&2 NIV
“What makes your heart sing with His joy over His love for just you?”
The photos are beautiful, Janis. To see the desert sprinkled with snow…a touch from the creator. His works are amazing.
Blessing Janis… Beautiful photos of your dusting! That Love and JOY caught my attention and it’s been far too long since I’ve been here. Such a beautiful view and dog! God is so wonderful dusting Arizona with snow, which is pretty remarkable. A really wonderful verse to Praise our Lord! If you stop by my place,you may find the answer to your inspirational question, which makes me pause and reflect on how much His JOY and LOVE does mean to me every day…just don’t send your snow further south, eh?
Thanks for dusting WFW with some remarkable photos of God’s sense of wonder, beauty and touch of a wonderful Creator capable of changing anyone, anywhere, any place! Praying for hearts that are changed and walls that come down in Jesus name and through His mercy and grace, which makes me sing praise too!
Love, peace and JOY,
How fun! I remember when we lived nearer the coast, how rare and exciting the snow was. Now I live where it’s quite common, and even can last forever – sometimes so long even the grandchildren are longing for it to be gone so they can play outside and stay warm – and yet, there’s still a sweet thrill each time it happens! The miracle of the flakes floating down is always wondrous. And when it really coats everything, it’s like God has “frosted” the world around us. Very encouraging Word-Filled Wednesday. Thank you 🙂
So beautiful pictures and inspiring words…happy WFW!
These pictures are so beautiful!!! I have never seen snow where you live, so these are GREAT. Your title of “Dusting of Love and Joy” is perfect to describe the scenery and how you were feeling when you got home. God is good!!!!
Thanks for sharing those lovely pictures. I have a friend who has gone to AZ to escape the snow in Canada. Goodness, unusual. But she did share about some beautiful days. The verses were great too. God’s beautiful creation makes my heart sing for joy. Blessings ~
very cool Janis! (sorry for the pun lol cool– snow lol)
Janis – Chip looks SO cute!! He looks like a totally different dog! I think he looks rather “wolfish” – in a good way!! Tell him that Marty thinks he looks tough – and that’s a good thing, because you just never know when you’re going to run into a dreaded black poodle!
Lovely pictures, too – isn’t there something just so refreshing and calming about photos of the snow?
What makes my heart sing? Just the fact that God is with me in every season of my life!
