A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Winter Wonderland – 14 December 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

After a ten inch snowfall here, it looks like a winter wonderland. Evergreen branches, heavily laden with snow, bend downwards; and visible through the woods, the distant horizon off to the southeast glows with a faint golden light. The newly frozen lake is covered with a blanket of white.

Here’s something I wrote about the beauty left behind by this December storm:

Winter Wonderland
By Mary T. Hoffman
(Written 14 December 2007, after a snowstorm.)

Evergreen branches laden with snow;
Through the clouds, winter’s glow;
Distant horizon with golden light;
On frozen lake a blanket of white.

December’s wonderland is here,
The shortest day of the year draws near;
Silence abounds – not even a peep;
It looks like Nature’s deep in sleep.
