It’s A Snow Globe World

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is something about snow that I love.

A certain hush falls on the outside, for a few brief moments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It covers all the dirt, and makes even the most mundane things…

beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snow softens the world, as it’s whiteness wraps all, in a blanket of stillness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And creates a snow globe haze that seems… magical.

Cold Beauty

Snow Globe

Yes. This winter seems unending. It has been cold and chaotic since the first snow fell on December 1.

And yet…as I stand at my kitchen window, I am amazed at the beauty of it all.

I quietly sigh. I stare upward.

White gray.

Snow blowing every which way. A blur of flakes.

Each one different. Unusual.

The scene before me resembles a snow globe that has been shook hard.

A flake frenzy.

Cold beauty.

Dogs with snowy fur.

Schools closed.

Gray sky filled with flakes.

The roar of wind.

I feel the need to snap a picture. To remember.

To pull out on the hot, sticky days of late July.

A cool memory to ease the pain of the heat.

Lord, I am thankful for this day you have given me.

And for the eyes wide open…to see your gift to me.
