Appreciating Beauty

oct-nov 2012 016

The snowfall was perfect. Gentle, large flakes. Perfect Christmas card kind of morning.

Except that it is March 26!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was not appreciating the snow this morning.

I want Spring already!

However, this afternoon after I dropped the girls at their dance class I went for a little walk. On my way I looked at all the mud and yuck and tried not to soak my inappropriate footwear completely. On the way back to the studio I finally looked up.

Twilight was just setting in and those big, gentle flakes were still falling.

“Aren’t they pretty?”

Yes, yes I had to admit they are truly beautiful. Even though they are coming out of the sky at the end of March the snow was absolutely perfect.

It is lending more moisture to our soil for our crops to use in spring.

It is covering up the mud and dirty snow that has already been uncovered through the melting process.

I can be thankful for the ugly-beautiful.

He made it. And it is good.

I love Him and He sent this gift of a perfect snowfall, so I said, “Thank you.”

About Lani

With six kids, a farm, a ministry and dreams poking out in every direction I need plenty of grace to keep all the balls in the air. The sweet thing is that when I drop them, that crazy grace of God is there telling me I'm still okay...and you are, too...welcome to this place of grace.
