For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. Job 37:6
This year’s weather has been a little crazy for December. Usually, our first good snow comes sometime between November 1 and the 3rd week of December. While we did have a very faint dusting of snow a couple times, it never really covered the ground and was gone in a day. Apparently, whoever is in charge of the weather decided that they had been shirking their job and dumped us with 10 inches of snow in a 24 hours period! We hunkered down in the house and watched the snow come at a fast and furious rate. We also watched the scanner report accident after accident on the local roads. The interstate and a couple main roads were closed after a while. A friend got stuck in the MIDDLE of the road on her way to care for a neighbor’s animals. Whiteout conditions were reported. It was a good day to stay home!
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail? Job 38:22
Now it is no longer ugly brown outside out windows. It is a beautiful white- pure and clean.
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. Isa. 1:18
The kids are very excited to have all this snow. They have been sledding, building forts, and throwing lots of snowballs! It has kept me busy making sure they all have an appropriate amount of hats, mittens, scarves, snow pants, and a warm coat. Before it snowed, Richie was convinced that it was not cold enough to wear a coat. With the snow he seems to get that it is actually winter!
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. Proverbs 31:21
