There is something about snow that puts a brrrr cold smile on everyone. Warm pants, coats, and mittens make for a wonderful time of play in a winter wonderland.
It also brings everyone together around the dinner table with hearty appetites. I love having all the kids home. I typically do not expect Elliot and Emily home much, as they are out with friends and catching up with them. So this snow has all of us home, playing, Christmas music playing in the back round of wrestling, baking, and all home. I imagine if we had a horse drawn carriage it would be different and we'd be out in that.
Thanks Lord Jesus for the beauty of snow. Prayers for those who have no power, who have no shelter, and for those who are lost and lonely. May they find hope in those who come along side to offer love and warmth. Blessings.
