For the last couple days it has been snowing on and off. This morning I woke up to a lovely white world. Not that it was not white before… we have had snow since the end of December. But the snow had turned to ice, not powdery, and more various shades of grey than pure white.
Am not too much a fan of winter. I really do prefer sunshine… I love the sea… but I have to admit… a beautiful serene white world with beautiful blue skies is very pretty indeed.
I looked up a few quotes, wondering what other people make of snow. These are 2 of the most beautiful ones I read:
‘There’s just something beautiful about walking in snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you’re special’
‘Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together’
The Bible is also talking about snow.. it’s not so easy to imagine snow in Israel, although it can be cold in the mountains there (never been, on the bucket list.. but have been told) Yet is the perfect analogy. ‘though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow” (Isa. 1:18)’
We can be white as snow… through the grace of God. His blood will cover our sins… He will wipe them out. We do have to accept it, but it’s a free gift.
Much like snow… a reminder of His grace…
Maybe I do love snow more than I think!
What about you?
