Surprised by Snow

Snow Ghosts at Big White

Josiah sang this week….. ‘Oh no, you’ll never let go, through the ice and through the snow’

Worship with a distinct Canadian influence. It will be a particular favorite of mine as I drive around Kelowna today.

‘You wake up on a Winter morning and pull up the shade, and what lay there the evening before is no longer there – the sodden gray yard, the dog droppings, the tire tracks in the frozen mud, the broken lawn chair you forgot to take in last fall. All this happened overnight, and what you look out on is not the snow of Narnia but the snow of home, which is no less shimmering, and white as it falls. The earth is covered with it, and it is falling still in silence so deep you can hear its silence. It is snow to be shoveled, to make driving even worse than usual, snow to be joked about and cursed at, but unless the child in you is entirely dead, it is snow, too, that can make your heart beat faster when it catches you by surprise in that way, before your defenses are up. It is snow that can awaken memories of things more wonderful than anything you ever knew or dreamed’  Frederick Beuchner, Telling the Truth – The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy & Fairy Tale.

‘The heavens declare the glory of God; and the skies proclaim the work of his hands’

Breathtaking, don’t you think?

Revelstoke Summer 2011. Our Lyndon.

The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk, not to stand still in terror, but to walk and make spiritual progress upon my high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility. Habakkuk 3:19

Praying for you, that whatever color you find your weekend, that you know God as your strength, that grace will cover all you do and as you walk on that rocky mountain you will know a sure footing.

All is Grace
