A Snow Day~A Day to be Still

snow on deckThis photo was taken yesterday afternoon, just as snow began to fall.  It continued all afternoon and through the evening.  Now, ice and snow cover every blade of grass, every twig, and every inch of cars, houses, and street signs.  Offices are closed and children received a snow day.  What a change from a normal Monday!

Monday usually finds me zipping about–to the school, to the grocery, to the post office, to meet a friend here or there.  I might need to pick up a certain something at the home improvement store, make a donation delivery, or toddle about tending some plants. (There’s always something to do in a garden!)  None of that is happening today though.

It’s a Snow Day.  It’s a Stop and Pause Day.  It’s a Take Some Time Day.  It’s wonderful.

Amidst the hectic pace that hastens December and the Christmas season into a sled ride down Runaway Canyon, we have been blessed with a day to stop in our tracks and pause.  In the peace of this day, Psalm 46:10 comes home to me:  “Be still and know that I am God.”  In our busy lives, there is nothing greater than knowing that God is God, and that He loves us so much that, at just the right time, He sent Christ for our atonement and salvation.

Whether you have snow or sunny skies, make a moment to ponder Psalm 46:10.  Be still and marvel at His creation.  Be still and in awe of His love.  Be still and know that He is God.
