Diamonds in the Trees

The trees are wearing diamonds in Atlanta today.  Sparkling, brilliant, dazzling diamonds. They slipped on the frosty facets overnight, draping them, ever so elegantly, around their slender necks, branchy arms and twiggy, little fingers.  
And this morning...
   the whole tree-world glistens with these shimmering ice-jewels that catch the light and reflect a twinkle straight from the eyes of God.
Strands of liquid crystal necklaces adorn the branches wearing hints of spring.

And raindrops, captured in free-fall freeze, are mounted in settings of hydrangea whispers and garden lace.

 Oh, the master jeweler of creation has suspended the world in a luminescent splendor, an iridescent, enameled guilloch√© of sorts, far more magnificent than any House of Faberg√© treasure.  And it's all on exhibit in this limited-time showing for you.  Just for you.  A gilded, embellished, lavish expression of God's creativity on full display for you.  

"God's glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon."   Psalm 19:1 - The Message
