White as Snow

Monday morning we woke up to another dump of snow.
It was actually a very beautiful site (well beauty is in the eye of the beholder :)
Fresh, white, fluffy snow blanketing the ground.
White for as far as you could see.
I was reminded once again of the verse in Isaiah 1:18.
Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." Unless you've seen a snowfall like this I don't think you can really comprehend the phrase, "White as snow" We used to have a white cat. At least we thought she was white.....until it snowed. When walking in the snow she actually looked kind of yellowish.
And that is why I love the simile used in Isaiah. Snow is white, very, very white. In fact I don't think I have seen anything that is whiter than snow.
Another great thing about a snowfall like this is how it covers everything and makes everything look so clean. The same as when God forgives our sins and we are made clean. So white, so clean.
So here are a few photos of our white world. And if you live in this great snowy province, enjoy the beauty around you. Because before long it will be spring again and all this white stuff will be gone for another season :) (I know, sad isn't it!)
Here is what our roads looked like when we went to town this morning.
Would you like to have been the first one to blaze this trail?
Go to far either way and you end up in the ditch.....seriously stuck :)
It is pretty challenging to find and stay on these kind of roads.
Who needs to be on a nice warm sandy beach when you can write a message in the snow?!?
And of course the photographer in our family won't pass up an opportunity to capture the beauty of God's creation.

WOW, it's beautiful! The pictures are great. I can honestly say there is NO WAY I'd try to find the road :)
