An early morning sun break creating shadows on the snow.
All my nicely shoveled walks are filled in again! So what used to be a simple trek can be quite treacherous, but there's no point shoveling again until it stops snowing.I'm not used to having to bundle up and put boots on just to go out and feed the animals and birds every morning. At least Oscar is willing and ready to come along and keep me company!
You know what? I think the gate needs painting. Didn't notice it so much before it snowed. Snow even makes white look dirty! Makes me think of Jesus' blood making our sins whiter than snow! (Isaiah 1:18) That's pretty white! You know that's what Christmas is really all about! Think of it...God humbling himself to come as a helpless baby so we could know Him personally. And the forgiveness of all our sins made possible through His death and resurrection. But just like the Christmas gifts we will receive, we can't receive His gift of salvation unless we accept it for ourselves.
"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life." John 3:16 (The Message Bible)
