Late Christmas night just before going to bed, I removed the lights from the outdoor tree lest they be frozen there all winter. Preparation for the storm.
And the wind came, and the snow came, and night. In the morning, air temperature still below freezing, the sun came up and shone upon the tree. Nature redecorated the tree, and did a marvelously artistic job, a more beautiful after-Christmas tree than the Christmas tree was with all its bright lights.
We are an artistic bunch, mankind. Yet with all our talent, technology and creativity, we cannot match the delights of the natural wonders with which the Creator of All Things has endowed us.
