It snowed today....so soft and feathery, big fluffs of heaven raining down. It caught me racing around, thoughts racing, my agenda spinning, but then...
I was memorized.
It was so ethereal.
I could feel my eyelids relax into their blink. I wrapped my arms around my excited ten year old.
The beauty of the day stopped him for a moment too(which doesn't happen too often), when he said, "Look Mom, Mr. Downing's trees are dreadlocked with snow!" Oh sweet boy! What a perfect description.
The rumble of the city seems to stop too, just to listen for the quiet of the snowfall for just a little while.
I really don't do this enough both the stopping and the listening. There is such great value in both of those things. Speaking of valueable things, here is a snippet of my grateful list for February.
I'm Grateful for:
- Wee little babies
- Chocolate brownies
- Capable Children
- Chirping birds in the sun
- Walks to the park
- Time to myself
- White feathery snow that makes us stop and listen
- The boyish-man hands of my oldest son rubbing my tired shoulders
- Spring bulbs
- An evening off from activities
Faith " I pray that faith will find root and grow in my children's hearts, that by faith they may gain what has been promised to them" (Luke 17:5-6, Hebrews 11:1-40) Lord may they actively seek to worship and grow their faith daily in you. I pray that when they have turned from it, they will feel as if their bones are moaning,
that this would serve to remind them of the path of righteousness and return to it. ~Amen.
