April 15th, tax day to some. To some in my area, a bad joke day. As I woke up this morning, and walked out the door, I noticed snow flakes on the ground. And yet more flakes on the way down. As I walked to my truck, I began to wonder what the expressions on most folks mouths would be as they woke up. I can imagine that not a lot of folks were very happy about this change. Especially considering that the temperature was in the mid 70’s the day before. But allow me for a minute to share this with you. As normal I’m the one who sees the glass half full, as opposed to half empty. So what is the good about this snow fall, you ask. If you stop and look at the picture of my truck covered in snow, stop and look at the grass covered in snow as well. This is a strange very unusual combination. There is a picture at the bottom here to give you a better idea. In the Bible there is a verse that reads,
It was majestic in beauty, with its spreading boughs, for its roots went down to abundant waters.
Every so often God looks for subtle ways to show us his majesty, his love, and concern for us. In these days when so many forget to stop and say, hey Lord, thanks that was a really good day. He gives us an AMAZING day to be joyful and remember that only he can do this.
In the book of Psalms David writes,
A song. A Psalm of Asaph A Plea for Judgment God, do not rest! Don’t be silent! Don’t stay inactive, God!
We’ll I’ll be the first to say his beauty shines the way in my life! I can only hope you see the forest through the trees! Enjoy the beauty before you now.
