Yes, it’s March and I’m not really thrilled about yet another snow storm in the northeast, but in spite of all the grumbling, there’s just something about snow……

Perhaps it is:

the childlike excitement we feel when we see the first flakes of winter

or maybe

it’s the purest white that falls from the heavens and rests so gently on all of creation

or maybe

it’s the way that it persuades us to spend the day inside under a blanket with tea and a good book

or maybe

it’s the way that it invites us to slow down.  Stop. Gaze out the window. Watch the snow fall. Be thankful for the warm home that you are blessed with, be thankful for God’s many gifts. Be thankful!
