It began to snow at my house about 1 p.m. today. They say we may get over 8 inches.
Now I sit in my house, reading, writing, watching, praying. Through every window, I watch powdered peace falling. I am privileged beyond measure. I have had today's meetings, fetched the last necessities, and now I sit in peace.
God chose to make precipitation beautiful. Thanks be to God. When these rare snows arrive, life's busyness comes to a halt. No one expects anyone to go anywhere or do anything.
We can take a deep breath and just be. We have permission to be still. We have time to listen. We remember that there are things--however few--over which we have absolutely no control. Through nature, God puts us in our place.
Be still and know that he is God.
