First Snow

In the last couple of days, it seems that many parts of the country has had a "1st Snow" - and I was least of all expecting it this morning when I woke up. It is just a dusting, but it lifts my spirits to a level of excitement, expectation, wonder, and delight. That's the one thing that has never changed in my whole life - the love of my world lightly covered in snow. Have a wonderful Sunday!

I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

We just so rarely get any, that if we get a good one, we're socked in for! So, the one we had over the weekend was perfectly beautiful and all melted by noon!
