A Day Filled With Wonders

The month of March began superbly!

The morning sun ascended across the cerulean sky radiantly, splashing iridescent colors onto the thin clouds that escorted it.

I stopped by the city river for some minutes to watch the unfolding of natural wonders before going to work.

I stood on the snow, gazing at the shifting prismatic colors of the cloud strips, being entranced by their gauzy elegance and keeping my camera busy.

Back to earth, my eyes were caught by the steam rising off the unfrozen edge of the river and then floating and swirling over the the snowy river bank. The visible "breath" of winter seized my fancy.

It was a perfect day to carry out an experiment that didn't go well in my previous attempts - soap bubble freezing in the snow.  It didn't turn out well either. I'd thought that it was too cold so that the entire bubbles instantly froze the moment they settled on the snow. I learned later that it has to do with the soap bubble formula, of which I had no idea at all. I just used a simple kid's ready-to-use bubble blow.... ha-ha-ha!!! Nonetheless, the whole globule turned to frost with iridescent feathery patterns. I think they're charming too!

Ah! The magpies were also basking in the "cold sunshine" on this lovely day!

Passing by a creek along the way to my work place, I espied these floating ice disks with lacy edges and the resident ducks meandering through them. Such simple things can make my heart leap with joy!

Coming home after work at around 5:00 pm, I perceived a golden face peering through the bare twigs. I searched for a spot where I could see it clearly. There it was! The moon beamed at me as it mounted into the hazy lilac sky.

On this day, all these beautiful creations harmoniously declared the glory of the One who brought them into being.

"For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship."
(Romans 1:20)

And the day faded into night, but the marvels that it brought have been preserved to be viewed again and again with delight.

"He has made everything beautiful in its time." 
(Ecclesiastes 3:1)
