Today: A mix of snow and rain will fall from early morning through the day, as temperatures remain stuck in the mid 30s. A changover to snow will finally occur by evening before ending around midnight.
Oh my blogging sisters... I just realized that I have passed my one year anniversary, over 200 posts, and here I still am...blogging away, and having met so many wonderful gals in Blogland. I went back to see what I blogged about a year ago on March 2nd. S-N-O-W!!! hah...And here we are looking at a wintry mix for today...one year later.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. It is a daily joy. I hope you will continue to visit when you have time, for I love your company and support and encouragement.
Today, just because....here is my post from one year ago. A repeat. - or should I say a re-post! *And Praise the Lord, Justin finished boot camp, and became the Marine he was called to be*
March 2, 2009
True to the weather forecast, the snow came. It started during the church service last night, and so we let out early.... I got to drive home in a dreamy shower of white falling in the darkness, which only accentuated its beauty.
The kids and dad (who is from Michigan!!, don't forget) enjoyed it, getting out and having a snowball fight. I came out to get a few photos, hopefully having a few decent ones to send to Justin at Parris Island.
I couldn't help but think of a quote our wonderful pastor at Christ Covenant Church, Mike Ross, used in one of his latest sermons. "Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they all stick together." (author unknown) And then he added his own words, a mini-sermon in itself...
"Each one of you, like a snowflake, is an individual masterpiece of God's creative genius, but you're fragile alone...but when you stick together, you cover the earth with the glory of the Lord, like the snow that comes down and covers everything. That is why we will do what the Psalmist says. 'From generation to generation, we will praise the Lord, and we will tell of His wonderful works in us.'" (Mike Ross from Generation Next 2-15-09)
If we as children of God, will not fall prey to the voice of our deceiver who tempts us to think,
"What can I do?...I'm just one person in a huge world that is full of overwhelming troubles..."
If we can do what the Psalmist says, and lift our voices together, share with each other and send a united message all over this earth, telling of all the wonderful works God has done, is doing, and will continue to do over HIS world, think what might happen!
And so, - I blog. It's not much, but it is my fragile little snowflake, adding on to many other sisters' snowflakes, blanketing the world of "the Internet", blogging about what God can do, when we all praise the Lord. Encouragement is contagious!
Catch it, and Pass It On!
