I love snow. It's been snowing today since noon. I love to be cloistered in the house while it's snowing, or outside wading around, and one could certainly do that today! I sat in the armchair this afternoon and watched it fall outside my big picture window. It has a way of calming my soul. I also read the Bible and felt the comfort of the Word of God. Snow is falling on pine trees in my world.

Happy New Year

Well, it's January 1, 2008. A year of new beginnings. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters" (Gen 1:1,2).

This is the beginning of the new year. I pray that God will take my formless and empty shell and hover over it, creating new and wonderful things in this year of our Lord 2008. The year 2007 was certainly chock-full of surprises, and I am sure 2008 will be no different. Instead of making resolutions that I will ultimately break, my prayer is that Christ be formed in me. Can I go wrong there?
