Snow Days

     As one of my friends said, God hit the pause button this week.  We have had a huge snowfall that cancelled school for three days this week.  Even Wal-mart was closed because of the snow, and that has never happened before.  My daughter posted this scripture on her Facebook page, and it has been on my mind this week.

God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
7 So that everyone he has made may know his work,
he stops all people from their labor.  Job 37:6-7

    He has certainly stopped us from our labor -- no school or work for any of us. We didn't even get in the car.  These days were like a gift of time to relax and enjoy staying up late to watch the Winter Olympics together, shovel snow together, bake brownies, feed the birds, and take pictures in the beautiful snow that covered everything. We spent Valentines Day together instead of having a busy day at work. Thank you, God, for refreshing the earth and our lives! It has been beautiful and now we are rested and eager to get back to our jobs. So now I thank You for the sun that is melting the snow!
