Little Sis, is so excited! It was white when she woke up today and she was ready first thing to get her sled and try the hill out. To run out and make snow angles ALL OVER. To make a snow kitty and a snow person. To roll around, to taste, to enjoy!
I love her excitement, because I feel it, too!
Yesterday when I was in town I heard so much grumbling about the snow. It was almost painful to hear all the complaining.
I understand that the cold does bring with it some hardships. I know and understand because I have Raynaud’s disease and deal with pain in my feet almost every day during the cold months.
But, still when I see the changing of the seasons, when I see those first snow flakes floating down there is an unexplainable joy within me. For me, it is like a kiss from God, those snowflakes so airy and light landing on my nose and eyelashes. In them I was see all the beauty, all the magnificence that our Creator is showering down upon us.
It pulls my gaze upwards, removing it from the earthly things.
As I gaze upwards into the shimmering sheet of whiteness, I feel His presence. It is unexplainable, but oh so sweet!
