One Bright Morning
Brrrr! It was chilly in our neck of the woods Tuesday morning. I don’t know how cold it got, but I checked the temperature a little before 6:00 p.m. Monday afternoon and it was already down to 20.
I love the cold in small doses. I like to go outside in a warm coat and feel the brisk air on my face, especially on a sunny morning like Tuesday. Snow filled the low, damp places in the pasture across the road. Part of the barn roof was white. Snow clung to the stubble and rocks at my feet.
As always, God taught was teaching through the things He has made.
For since the creation of the world
His invisible attributes,
His eternal power and divine nature,
have been clearly seen,
being understood through what has been made,
so that they are without excuse.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.
For You have been my help,
And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
