Snow, Beautiful Snow!
Whew! It has been a long time since I posted! I’m hoping to get into a schedule of doing it a little more often again. Life has been crazy, and it still is; but it is good to take a few minutes to stop and reflect on life and to think about what has happened and to remember what the Lord has done for us.
Earlier this month we were planning for a big snow storm. There was concern that power would go out. Thank the Lord we did not lose power. We had about 2 ½ inches of snow and about 2 to 3 inches of sleet on top of the snow. There was a little freezing rain to add some solidity to that snow. Oh, but it was beautiful!
It was fun to watch the squirrels. They seemed to have a great time in the snow. I felt a little sorry for them though. The snow was so hard because of the ice that it was difficult for them to dig for their food.
Surprisingly, the snow stayed around for several days. That is unusual for us, especially this early in the season. Christy had two days off work too. We did enjoy some time together!
God says, "As the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." (Isaiah 55:10,11)
