I must confess...I stole that title...from my 6 year old. With this only being the second accumulation of any snow for the 2011-12 winter season, the 1-2" total snowfall felt like a wintry festival to her. As a former 6 year old myself, I can understand her excitement.
As I look at the fresh, undisturbed white blanket outside my windows, though, I can't help but recall Isaiah 1:18..." 'Come now, let us reason together,' Says the Lord, 'Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.' "
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your perfect plan of salvation for me through the sacrifice of Jesus. A mercy undeserved...a debt I can never repay.
