Have you ever had a prayer answered? I have many many times. Lately I had one particular prayer answered that was so amazing that it made my spirit sing. We had a white Christmas right here in Texas. It probably wasn't the day I would have chosen because I had planned to go shopping that day.
The roads were closed down and many people where stuck somewhere. Even though it brought delays and even cancellations, I was thrilled. I love a little snow during the winter. It makes everything so beautiful and sparkly. It reminds me of what The Lord does for us.
I love how the snow makes the world seem quiet.
The cold temperatures are an excellent reason to get in my warmest pj's, fuzzy socks and light a fire; and then spend time reading and sipping on some hot spiced cider.
When you get a snow that shuts down the roads it gives everyone a chance to slow down and enjoy the beauty around them.
Snow days are a chance to play and enjoy. Go ahead, it's really OK to not worry so much about those delays and closures and even being stuck. Isn't it more fun to make a snow angel, or a snow ball, or snow ice cream or even just to enjoy the sparkle of everything covered in white glitter? I missed out on a day of shopping because of the snow, but when I stop and look closer I realize what a beautiful experience I would have missed otherwise.
I will take a day of laughing while my husband and son throw snow balls; and hearing how one tackled the other in a snow drift; and watching my son and his friends do heart pounding feats on ATVs; and even seeing how creative they can be with a golf cart dragging a blue plastic swimming pool for a makeshift sled any day. I can shop another day and gladly give it up because this was a snow day!
Until Next Time
