We had our first snowfall of the winter this week around here. Sure, winter doesn’t officially start for more than five weeks, but this is Wisconsin.
And, oh! The complaining that followed!
And all over the Midwestern United States, folks argued about whether they welcomed the pretty snow and the promise of winter sports or simply counted the days till spring would arrive.
Personally, I’m finding myself playing both sides on the snow issue.
I love warmer weather, but a fresh snow certainly dresses up the neighborhood. Snow hides a multitude of messes, like those crusty, wilted annual flowers I still need to clear out of my garden.
God’s grace is a little like that – only much more so.
Today’s Bible promise points to the fresh, clean lives the Lord creates out of our crusty, wilty lives.
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow:
Though they are red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.”
(Isaiah 1:18, NKJV)
I think I’ll slip on my favorite white wool sweater and go brave the snowy weather with a new attitude, at least for today.
