Treasures of the Snow

Earlier this year my husband  and I were blessed by our dear friends the Saint’s proving their namesake by taking us to  play in the snow at Mt. Hood Timberline Lodge. Though this majestic mountain is only hour away from home, it only took us 26 years to get there to enjoy it!  It was a delightful day from start to finish and a stunning reminder that God pulled out all the stops on showcasing His creation of Mt. Hood….the wow factor was simply off the charts.
 
My heart was taken back to a time I had pondered Job’s question regarding snow… here are a few of my thoughts about it.
 “Have you entered into the treasures of the Snow?”    Job 38:22

God’s word speaks of it,  His glorious handiwork declaring  its’ beauty and wonder.
Snowflakes form around a speck of dust  that get carried up into the atmosphere by the wind.  A water crystal develops  becoming  His  unique  one-of-a kind  creation, as so with His  children–no two exactly alike.

This peaceful, tranquil,  fresh-fallen snow  that  quietly covers the dirt and soiled earth.  Dazzling it in a brilliant blanket of purity and innocent gleam.  Making God’s secret place of the snow  a storehouse of His truths and a flurry of His promises. 

Psalms 51:7  says, “Cleanse me with the hyssop and I will be clean, wash me and I shall  (in reality) be whiter then snow.”

Isaiah 55:10-11  states  “For as rain and snow come down from heaven …. so God’s word does not come back void but accomplishes that which it was sent to do.”

So, before the winter is past and  and spring has sprung, let us wrap up our winter  lingering in His treasures. 17 days of winter wonder still to go,  I say  Lord … Let it Snow,  Let it Snow,  Let it Snow!
