Snow in Mississippi!

Saturday, January 19, 2008


What a rare treat we woke up to this morning -- a fresh blanket of new-fallen snow! Our weather forecasters here in Mississippi totally missed the prediction -- we were told by them it would only snow in North Mississippi and not down here in South Mississippi where I live; instead, the opposite happened!

The snow reminded me so much of a scripture found in Isaiah - ..."though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow...Isaiah 1:18." There is not a white comparable to that of snow. I remember one time years ago when it snowed (probably the last time it snowed here in Mississippi, in fact), and our white husky dog was out frolicking in the snow. In contrast to the snow, our dog looked a dingy grey.

Just goes to show that many times unexpected blessings are the best ones!

    How wonderful to hear snow called a "blessing"! It really is, I suppose... sigh. We wade through the stuff for about 5 or 6 months of the year here in Michigan, so I'm not sure if I'd go straight to the word "blessing"! LOL! I can't imagine one year without it, let alone 6 or 7! Actually, I must say, I lived in Miami for one winter, and I was not partial to a green Christmas. Norma, it is good to be reminded of the 'whiteness' of it, and to associate it with the grace we've received freely from the Lord. Amazing what He can do, huh?!?

    We had snow here in Alabama, too. My kids had only seen snow one other time in their life and they went nuts! I haven't posted the pics on my blog yet, but I am going to before the day is out.

    And you are right! What a blessing to remind us that our God is still in control.
