Oh (s)No it's Snowing

Snow. It's such an interesting thing. It fell this morning for the first time this Fall. I must admit, I had hoped that it would come later. However as it kept coming down and disappearing on contact with the concrete I thought to myself, "Say, this snow isn't so sad afterall."

Today it just came and went. But soon it will come to stay. Snow has some wonderful uses. It can be a source of water for summer months as it melts off the mountains and flows into the valley. It provides beautiful scenery, especially for a white Christmas. Plus, it can be a whole lot of fun. Jeremy Jones would attest to that.

The snow can also represent cleanness and purity. As in the case of Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

Our Father in Heaven has given us many gifts. Scriptures, snow, and sins forgiven are all signs of His sincere solicitude. All He asks is that we be willing and obedient, then we shall eat of the good of the land (see Isaiah 1:19).
