Let it snow! Sunday morning we had a rare privilege of snow here in Palmetto, Georgia. And because most of us Southerners do not drive in ice very well, we did not have an evening service, another rare event. Most of us older kids enjoyed the beauty and tossed a few friendly snowballs. I am sure that the real young people made snowmen and did some sliding down even the smallest hill.
As we drove home even normally unkempt yards were beautifully covered with a clean blanket of pure white snow. In our yard the mounts of wood chips, from recently removed trees, looked like mini ski slopes. I was reminded of how our live before Christ was filled with all kinds of junk but now we are covered with the precious blood of Jesus. The rare snow here in Palmetto is just a reminder of the change in our lives after we are saved.
Psalm 51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
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.
