Early Christmas Present

Sunday afternoon the snow began to fall. Large, fluffy flakes that seemed to not fall from the sky, come straight from the west. After a while, the flakes started to accumulate on the grass, trees, and finally the roads. It was a challenge to determine how deep the snow actually was on the ground. In places it measured just a 1/2 inch and in others several inches due to the drifts from the vast wind gusts.

I love the snow. A fresh blanket of snow always reminds me of Isaiah 1:18, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. KJV

It saddens me to hear people say they dislike the snow, to me it is such a reminder of how we can be forgiven ours sins and have a new start. I am very thankful of the safety of our family who was out and about in this snow. Our daughter made it safely from work on very slick roads. Also thankful for the 18 brave people who made it to evening worship Sunday night. We usually have more than 10 times that many, but may stayed in due to the weather.

From the amount of wrecks we saw Sunday evening - I think the smart ones were those who stayed in. Now to just wait and see if we get more snow tomorrow as predicted. No matter if we see snow or not, tomorrow can be another gift from God, we must just enjoy the day as a present.
