and then it snowed

It reminds me of Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

I see the fresh white covering over the earth, and I think of the righteousness of Christ, and the gift He gave. Let me reason with Him. Let me surrender to Him. And then shall all my sins be forgiven and like the white of that fresh, glittering snow.

Shall we have a little insight into Eden’s brain thinks sometimes? Why not.

As I wrote that previous sentence, I thought of how beautiful the snow is on it’s own. But then when the sun shines on it, it glitters and sparkles a thousand times more.

Jesus gives us his righteousness, then Jesus the Son – the Light of the World – shines on us and illumines us even more.

That’s why I love nature. If looked at and studied, or even just casually observed, it offers us so many little lessons about the character of Christ.

snow + sunshine

As much as I enjoy watching it snow and seeing the little flakes floating down, there is something almost magical about waking up to a day where the sun is shining over a fresh blanket of snow.

The sun was shining a cold light on the thin layer of snow, so as soon as I could, I grabbed my camera, put on my brother’s chore boots, and went to see what I could capture.

A lot of little ice crystals and water droplets were frozen to the tips of leaves and pine needles, which was gorgeous to say the least.

As you can see, it wasn’t a whole lot of snow, but it was just enough to transform the world.

Inside, due to the snow, the lighting was dreamy, and somehow Little Kitty had settled down in just the right spot for me to capture the next photos.

 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
