Ventured out again with Juliet this morning...notice that we are still experiencing some gray skies. Just want to give a shout out to God....the one who made sure we did not loose electricity and allowed our heaters to work so well that we did not have to use our gas. Thank you Jesus!
Most everything is still covered in snow...although we jump when occasionally clumps of snow fall from the trees. I couldn't help but notice this creek side rock. It reminded me of times when our lives feel covered and frozen spiritually. But....because we know the Father of Lights....we know the thaw is coming!
That truth brings such joy to my heart.
And here is my crazy girl venturing out into the water.....I can not even imagine how cold the water is. I think she must think it is safer to be standing in the water rather than under trees that are dropping little gifts on our heads. :)
After so many days without being able to see the sun.... it is a relief to see some blue skies today. That joy is tempered by the fact that we have been told there will be a "wrap around" of the storm...so we may see a little more of the white stuff before it is all over.
We are back in the camper now and it sounds like we are being bombarded with tiny little snow bombs as the snow falls out of the trees onto the camper. Juliet is not a happy camper....for such a big dog she can not handle the noise. At the moment she is curled up beside me shaking.....afraid something is trying to get in and get her.
Isn't that so much like us?
Not knowing the true meaning of all that is going on around us we are often sent into a tizzy of frenzy.
Instead.....maybe we should just curl up with God and rest in the ONE who surrounds us and lives in us.
So thought for the day........
Of course it is important to look into the Word to learn more about the One who loves us....
but at the same time
if we look at our lives through His eyes
we will find that there are messages of His faithful love for us "hidden" everywhere.
After all He is...Emmanuel...God with us. :)
