Refresh

We got another little bit of snow last night. Not much of an accumulation but enough to cover everything in sight with a fluffy white blanket. It looks so pretty and sweet.

I realized this morning that one thing that  is special about a snowfall is that refresh, restart thing that it does. No matter how ugly and drab the landscape can be in winter, once the snow falls and covers it, everything looks nice again.

That is what Jesus came to do in our lives, not cover us with snow, but to take us back to a refresh, a restart. Lamentations 3:23 says that God’s mercies are new every morning. Every morning, every moment, I can go to God, repent and be forgiven and washed clean and to God, my heart mind soul and spirit look as clean and as fresh as a blanket of new fallen snow.

With that image in mind, please listen to our granddaughter Molly’s winter time song, “white sheet of snow”. Just click on the link and listen for free. If you like the song please “like” it and share it with your friends and families. In this case, regifting is the requested and recommended practice. From our family to yours, Merry Christmas.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
