I tip toed out while the snow was falling in hopes I would find something like this.
I seem to want it more and more these days.
Now mind you, most don't think snow on the 2nd day of May is much to write home about.
And maybe I'm not all that thrilled, myself.
But, you can't deny how beautiful it is to watch it melt on warm Spring flowers.
Or how the water drops collect on the now closed tulip.
Because even when eveything around us seems ugly and hostile and harsh...
we can still find the beauty.
It is there.
HE, the creator of all beauty, is there.
May blessings to you today, friend.
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You."
