My kids were very excited to wake up to snow this morning. The first thing they did was get on their snow pants and coats and head out to the hill with their sleds. Fur Ball was fascinated with the cold wet stuff as well and had a great time chasing them down the hill. Winter has officially made an appearance at our house, it's time to stay inside for me! It is cold, and currently snowing some more.
I am happy that my children love to play in the snow and they create many good memories of times they have played for hours in the snow. It's a good thing. It reminds me of hot chocolate, chili, and sugar cookies! And, this year, I will enjoy some time by the fireplace, listening to the crackle of wood burn, and the laughter of my children playing in the snow.
When I saw the snow this morning, I thought of this verse:
"Come now and let us reason together," says the Lord, "though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool."
I love how He seeks to reason with me. I love His promise that even though my sins are as scarlet, He has me covered, and because of Him I am white as snow. And, because of what He has done for me, He warms my soul!
Say That Again, Jesus, as I see the snow today. Remind me many times of Your merciful gifts to me!
