Picture - revealed

The other day I posted this picture and asked y'all to guess what it is:

I think the two most popular guesses were fungus and some type of meat. :) Perhaps this picture will help clarify some details? :)

It was probably 9:30 in the morning when I went outside to cut a few boards for Dad. After finding the tools I needed, I stepped out the side of the house.

Shoots of ice popped up from the ground - about three inches high.

It was fascinating to observe this close-up!

The ice was light and easily broke away from the mud. It appears that the water separated from the mud and froze, creating these amazing needle-like points of ice.

Though we had seen this type of ice on our new volley-ball pad, it was nothing like that morning!

Even in small ways, God's creation is amazing to behold!

"The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His mercy . . . He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes. He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold? He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: He causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow." (Psalm 147:11, 16-18)

@ Salinn,

Yes! And when we think that we've seen so much of it, God reveals something new! :)
