Here is an old post that I dusted off...but it is as true today as it was then.
I know that most of you are buried in snow but down here in Texas we have been in drought. It has been so dry that the ground is like powder. We did finally get some ice this past weekend but not nearly enough moisture from it to heal the land. I have been so longing for snow or rain that I pulled out some of my pictures from last year when we got a few inches of snow. I went out to check on the ducks that day expecting them to be all snug in their shed only to find them out waddling around in the white stuff.
What is it about snow that makes the world seem almost silent?.

I love how it coats everything making it seem clean & beautiful. The beauty almost takes my breath away.
The snow seems to cause everything to look softer and the flurries in the air makes it seem misty & ethereal.
My prayer garden looks so different. Gone are all the bright colors with one swift stroke of The Lord's paintbrush, He paints it white.
He coats the trees with fluffy white frosting.
Even my footsteps are muffled as I trudge thru the snow. Do you suppose it is so that we will look about us & notice the beauty?
Colors become muted, details changed, sounds muffled.
