    1. Thank you, Kamal. Yes God is Love and Kindness I so agree with you. This is the Way I was taught how to live my life. No regrets for I have traveled in very dark places which no longer hold true. God bless you!! Much love to you! xo

  1. Winter Wonderland indeed — gorgeous photos, Amy! I’m mesmerized by all that snow … and the birdies are two I’ve never seen close up. Snow is kind of like rain — it seems to purify whatever it falls upon. Of course, snow feels more peaceful to me, and I love how it blankets the earth with powdered sugar beauty!

  3. I thought most birds went south for the winter for its warmth? They must have been brave, as you were wandering in God’s cool country Amy. Beautiful pictures, it is a winter wonderland indeed 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 😂 🤣

    1. Mark, some birds do stay all year long. A good many in fact. I learned something new about birds this year and that is, some species of Bluebirds stay here all year round. I have many more pictures from this day of heaven just in case we don’t get more snow. So glad you enjoyed this day with me! Much love to you! xo

  4. divine royalty that stopped my breath.
    Slowly and deeply I breathed heaven into me

    These words above of yours became my felt experience. And I immersed myself in it – such richness and peace I felt within. The birds are messengers of the beauty of life – such gorgeous pictures. While I wandered through the experience from picture to picture, what became very evident to me is the presence of pathways – there are pathways in this heaven that are available for us to choose from.

    1. Hmmmmm I do believe I told you, Prag, that a special story is coming. It still is. I just follow the guidance of my heart and this post was created to my surprise. I’m touched that you really get me and understand what purpose I am undertaking by posting what I do. Yes there are pathways to heaven and it is up to us to choose which one is for us. Some of the footprints you saw were mine. (smile) Yes I really left my energy for those coming after me. May your day be truly blessed. Sending so much love and peace to you! xo

      1. I actually wrote something about the footprints and deleted it – I felt I didn’t need to mention them, they were part of the pathway. So I am delighted that you mention them 🙂

        As a side note yet again, I am totally inspired by how you own it that your energy matters and you make a difference to those coming after you – I checked into myself and I ‘know’ I am in service similarly but just wouldn’t say it aloud, I would do it secretly and walk away as if it doesn’t matter – I wonder of the growth I need to be able to feel it and say it that yes it matters. I am still learning the fine line between humility and self worth. You are showing me the pathway between the 2. Much Love & Gratitude.

      2. I actually saw this comment yesterday but yesterday was just one of those days! Yes my energy matters as does yours and just take my word for it, when you realize this, it just automatically unfolds. It’s effortless. It happens whether you know it or not. But when you own this truth, you can actually increase its power with intention and just the way you present yourself. Self-worth is humility for when you embrace that understanding you know the extent of ALL that occurred to get you where you are. Ego has nothing to do with this. As you step confidentially into owning your energy, your power, people will react to your differently. Don’t put too much thought into this. Just FEEL and ACT as though you’ve owned your power. And voila, it just happens. The beauty unfolds effortlessly ……

    1. You’re welcome, dear Miriam. Heaven one must look for and feel even in the everyday moments. All I have to do is to close my eyes and I am back in that very special day. Sending you in return lots of warm hugs and love, even if it is cold here. xoxo

      1. I love your photos Amy, we are both blessed to be able to share what we see with whom ever may cross our paths. You and I live in totally different areas, yet there is so much similarity in what we see because our eyes are opened to the beauty of the simple things in life.

      2. I so agree. As I said just today, there is a real happy kid alive inside of me full of innocence and joy! And this is the kid with wide-eyed wonder walking around with her head bumping up against the clouds with a camera in her hands. LOL

  6. Ah, you have stepped into the White. Yes, it’s tough to not float right away. Welcome Home, dear Amy.💕 Thank you for capturing the magic on film.

    1. Oh, Julie, I kept meaning to get back to you. So sorry!! YES!!! One word I neglected to say to you in describing your energy is HOME. I know. And then today I get knocked in the face by a horse’s head who is my “best friend” and knows my movements but is sooooo jittery today. Thank God it was not my nose she hit because it would have been crushed. And because I am so in tune with her, I sensed the blow coming and moved FAST so that the impact would not be full on. This horse weighs 2 tons. Yup, big head! I’m going to have a lovely bruise on my face. Even this is HOME. LOL You are welcome for the magic. Golly I have so many more to show!! I’ve been praying for you with your new job. I meant to say that too. Sending you much love and peace, dear friend. xo

  7. Such sturdy birds! And such a wonderfully monochrome landscape. It’s good to know those trees are just sleeping, thriving through the winter.
    Do you have plans to go back to that magical place before the snow melts?

  8. Awesome photos, as usual, Amy. I realized I hadn’t been getting notices of new posts by you. For some reason, WP seems to only notify me of new posts by a few of the bloggers I follow. Bad WP! So I decided to go looking for all my friends. I’m happy to see you still on here – so many of my WP friends have simply faded away over the last year or two. 2020 was a rough year for sure, and 2021 isn’t starting out all that well, either. Kudos to you for bringing beauty to us with your photos; it’s been too cold and icy for me to go out, never mind that I simply haven’t been in the right mood for either photography or writing. I need to kick myself in the ass and get back out there. I’ll use you as my inspiration.

    1. Hello, CM. Good to see you. Now I’m curious if I am still following you. I’ll have to check when I visit your blog. I can’t keep track of who comes here or not cuz between my personal life and the amount of people who do come here, it’s just not possible. 2020 was an indoctrination into delving deep within ourselves in order to face the very fears that cripple us. 2021 will be a year so spectacular that no one will ever forget it. The illusion of what is supposedly happening in the physical world I completely ignore. I am focusing on MY life by creating more love and more beauty. That does not mean I have my head stuck in the sand. No. I’m very well informed yet I do not get sucked into it. My TV is off …. I absolutely refuse to listen to the propaganda MSM pushes so that people stay in fear. There is a beautiful world forming and oh yeah I am very much part of that world. Sometimes it takes determination to pick up our camera and get out there. You won’t regret it. Hope you have a really great day. I actually have another post up today showing JOY!!! Sending you much love today!!! xo

  9. These pictures are stunning, Amy. This must be near your home. Those birds are gorgeous. We had 2 feet in Prescott. Moving from central California, I hadn’t seen snow like that in more than 35 years! It did feel heavenly. My next order of business – buy boots! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Marsha! I really lucked out on those birds. I was so grateful for that Gift! Oh yes for goodness sakes you must have boots for snow. You are too funny. I hope the newness of having snow doesn’t wear off. Winter can get long but so far this Winter has been just beautiful, which is strange for me to say for I wasn’t a fan of Winter. Seems like I am now. May you have a really great day today!! Much love to you! xo
