First Snow

     We had our first snow of the year this week. I had a scary drive home in the midddle of it. Then I settled down in the sunroom and marveled at the whiteness; how pure, how clean.
     I know that much of our country this year has dealt with extreme blizzards and digging out from record amounts of snowfall. People in that situation aren't going to be thinking about the beauty of snow but how quickly to get rid of it.
Where I live, we have been blesssed to have one small, perfect snow-so far, anyway. I sat in wonder of it, watching it cover the crumbled leaves and brownish grass.
I thought about what Jesus has done in my life. He has covered my imperfections , my sins, my wounds with His Amazing Grace. He is turning this broken woman into something beautiful. I sit in awe and marvel.
"Come now, let's settle this," says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make themas white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them white as wool", Isaiah 1:18. NLT


  1. O Peggy, how nice ... this blog! I love the bibleverse!

  2. Hi Peggy,
    Yes it is beautiful...But while you are thankful for your first snow...I am praying that this (it's still snowing here) will be our last snow, lol!
    Lots of overtime work for my husband...but we need to have a weekend to get away from it all now!
    I like to think about how Jesus covered our sin just like that pure blanket of white snow covers the decaying leaves too...and that is one of my favorite verses!
    ~God bless~ Lisa

  3. We see so many months of snow and I forget the 'beauty' at times. Thank you for the verse, the reminder.

  4. That is a beautiful reminder from Him that you mentioned. I love snow except we have them in the nearby mountains. I'm glad you got some anyway. We are facing drought and it's nice if we can have more. I think we only got a little so far. We have periods of dry and wet weather. But I will think about His goodness, no matter what season. Because of that promise! Blessings to you sister.

  5. Peggy thank you for your encouraging words. Do not get snow where I live. But, I lived in NY so I know what snow is. Hee hee.....
