Looking out the window today I was able to experience something that is not usual for me; we had some snow. I grew in the Caribbean and I now live in the South. Yes, we get a little here and there, but it’s not usually enough to stick on the ground. Today apparently we’re going to have more than enough. Many people are scared of the weather conditions, for me it’s a beautiful day. Everything is in the eye of the beholder, like all the events in lives. Yes it is cold, but cozy, it reminds me of how cold life can be out there and how blessed I am of having a warm place inside. It makes me grateful for God’s provision of a roof over my head and warm clothes to wear in this weather. It reminds me to pray for those less fortunate that are suffering for whatever reason out in this weather.
Driving home through the snow showers was a beautiful thing to see. It was like being inside a capsule and looking at a postcard. It rarely seemed real. I kept thinking of this majestic scenery and all it represented. Once the snow it’s deposited on the ground it remains white until something alters it. It also reminds me of how our lives are in God until we allow sin to interrupt our lives.
A day like today is a reminder that even when we least expected things can change; sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, but that regardless of the direction, our Maker is with us. It reminds me that when we are in the middle of the unknown it’s time to drive through life slowly and careful to avoid slipping and crashing in the arms of danger. It is the perfect time to see that no matter what’s going on in our lives, live itself is still breathtaking and amazing as we have the opportunity to see another one of God’s wonders and enjoy another day of life.
