Feb. 10 I'm thinking about snow
I woke up this morning to SILENCE a hushed mother nature kind of quiet that gave me peace. I opened my eyes, peeked out my window and saw the MOST WONDERFUL BLANKET OF SNOW. We had 3 or more inches over night. I know to some of you that sounds trivial. But for me 3 inches of snow seem like a miracle. I spent most of my life in Southern California. The chance of snow did not exist. As I got to my feet and headed to the kitchen to make coffee I began to thank the Lord for the surprise of snow. It feels like a present. I was thinking about a fact I'd read recently, before the first snow flake falls it began high in the heavens 8 hours earlier. It seems to me that faith is like that as well. We have prayed over something waiting anxiously for the answer. Sometimes it feels as though we're never going to receive it. How wonderful to think faith is like snow. Just because we can't see it right away doesn't mean it isn't coming. We might just need to wait for "some time" before that first snow flake of change falls on our life....just because we can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't coming !
