So the day after I changed my snowy blog header to something more springy, we're supposed to get snow. Caroline and I have been watching spring videos, gearing up for sunshine, sliding in the backyard, and walks down the sidewalk. And now we are supposed to get 1-2 inches this afternoon!

For a summer girl like me, it's hard to be grateful for snow. I went to my Bible to find out if God had anything to say about snow. There were two references in my condensed concordance:
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
-Psalm 51:7
"Come now, let us reason together,"
says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
-Isaiah 1:18
What a wonderful, freeing reminder for me this morning as we think of snow. The Lord hears my confessions, casts my sins far from his mind, forgives me so that I am white as snow. It seems I've found a reason to be grateful for snow.

(More snow references in the Bible Gateway concordance.)

I love your new header, even if it's not quite blooming time! You're right - a nice reminder when we're discouraged about snowy, icy weather. Thanks for sharing.
