Just like last year, we are having a cold January. Still, we don’t usually get a lot of snow on our Jackson County hills. When we do, it’s very pretty. Here’s a picture from a few winters ago to prove it.
I’m always sad to see it go away. You folks who live in the north might disagree with me, but I’ve never lived where there was as much snow as I think I would like–even in Illinois.
When we see snow in Tennessee, we see scenes like these:
God’s perspective is very different. Yes, He sees the little animal footprints, the snow on the hillsides and on a concrete bench, and the shadow of a tree on a snow-covered lawn, but God can see so much more.
We cannot make one snowflake fall, but God takes care of the whole world. Not one snowflake falls to the ground anywhere without His power and love and grace and loving care.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes.
He casts forth His ice as fragments;
Who can stand before His cold?
He sends forth His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.
