It’s hard to get on my Facebook right now and not see pictures of snow from my family and friends…in Texas! It’s definitely not normal in March to be experiencing such crazy weather in that area. This is a picture from yesterday of my in-law’s backyard…
Honestly, I’m a little jealous I’m not there to experience it. I mean, who doesn’t love making a snow angel!
But the real reason I wish I were there is because of something I read in the book When People Grieve that has stuck with me. The author shares…
“I wanted to know what it would be like to hear the snow. I wanted to experience a life that could be that brilliant.”
Have you ever thought about that? Hearing the snow fall. In our storms of life, we always hear the rain come down. But in the softness of the snow falling, do we take time to experience the peace?
A life that can hear the snow is one that takes time to be still. It takes time to listen. And it was the still small voice of God that spoke courage to Elijah.
So if you are surrounded by the craziness of a snow day, I pray you will have a chance for some stillness too. And as you look at the beautiful whiteness and brilliance of God’s creation, remember that in Him, we are white as snow too!
“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
