Snow Day!

It's snowing! When I woke up at 7 there was not a flake - but by 9 we had an inch of perfect white fluffy snow covering the ground and flocked on the mini evergreen forest behind our house. There is something about snow that is just so peaceful and beautiful. It seems magical and can turn the most ordinary of trees into an enchanting winter beauty, and the oldest person into a giddy child again.

It is important to allow ourselves to enjoy the simple pleasure of creation and snow is one of those. The pressure of health concerns or pain of any kind can threten to steal away joy in the moments we have here on earth. But, in allowing ourselves the joy and excitment and the beauty of creation, we can actually help ease the pain of physical illness - AND makes it more fun for others to be around us too! So enjoy the glimpses of the creativity of God displayed all around you today.


  1. Ali, I love the snow! Winter is my favorite season and everybody thinks I'm nuts. Yes, I enjoy the beauty of spring with all the fresh green grass and the blooming tulips. And Yes, I love summer because I can enjoy looking at my garden. Fall is's colors are breathtaking at times. But winter is magical for me. My favorite since I was a kid.

    Sorry I haven't been commenting on your blog lately, four months of taking care of my Mom, and her death has put me in a weird place. I'm reading your blog when I can, you are always so cheerful!

  2. Hi Mo! So sorry you have been going through so much that has been hard on you. I'm praying for you today.
