Sitting in the Snow

December 15, 2007

It’s snowing right now. And this snow is everything that snow should be… peaceful and beautiful and abundant. This snow is EXACTLY what I needed tonight.

This week has left me physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. Work kind of sucks right now… and I hate the fact that my mother is not around for my 25th birthday (and Christmas). Once I got some alone time tonight, I spent a lot of time crying.

Eventually, I decided to go outside and watch the snow. I layered up, grabbed some socks, gloves, and a blanket, and curled up in the partially shielded corner just outside our door.

… INCREDIBLE. It was so stilling… so calming. I didn’t cry. I just rested. I just sat there… at peace… loving the Lord.

Eventually, I fell asleep. That’s how soothing the whole thing was. When I woke up, I just kept watching. Just kept resting. Just kept letting Him love me and letting Him be my comforter.

I really do love snow.
