Today, January 12, 2011 proves to be one of those snowed in days. It started snowing last night about 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. and it is still coming down. I'm in my glory and I know Sparrow is too.
Take some time today to do things you wouldn't ordinarily do like; Sleep late. Watch a good movie snuggled under a blanket. Bake some cookies. Start a blog, or a scrapbook. Organize your photo's. Take pictures of the snow. Go for a nature walk in the snow. Break out an old board game. I haven't done that in years. Make a snowman, or woman. Or course shovel your driveway if you want to get out the next day. After you do that, you can come in to warm up by the fireplace drinking a cup of hot coca as you sit looking out of window watching the snow fall.
A priority to this list of course is to think about Jehovah. Contemplate his great creative works. Take time to look at each branch of a tree or bush that is laden with snow. Think about his wonderful cardinal qualities of love, wisdom, justice and power. If we enjoy the snow, he must too, because we are created in his image, he gave us things he knew that we would delight in.
Perhaps we can look up some of his qualities in the "Insight Book" on this snowy day, or how about look up information on snow and ice, it's there. This would be a good day to work on my return visit book, that will be a big job. I need about 3 snowed in days for that.
Snow is a four letter word. It is a gift from God and he's stopping all mankind from their work to take time to think about him, the provider of every good and perfect gift. Enjoy your snow day whatever you do!
This is Raven-as the crow flies!
