I awoke to this scene today. It is very snowy, cold, and windy. My little farm is right near a highway and I know when there is no traffic that it is not nice outside. Earlier this week we had 60 degrees. I thanked the Lord for a small break in the cold. But though it is yucky outside, I enjoyed looking at the scene before me. The snow is beautiful and made me smile.
I thought today is a day to cozy up with a great book, my teapot full of my favorite tea, and a blanket. It is as though God said you need to rest today. Enjoy being inside with your family and just be. I love how God knows my every need before I do. He is in the ordinary and magnificent. Who else but God could make each snowflake unique and bring a winter beauty as only He can? So today I am going to enjoy the cozy day and give thanks that I don’t have to venture outside and yet still be awakened to the beauty of today.
Blessings on this Sunday to all of you. May it be a day of rest and coziness to revive and renew before the week ahead.
