Everything Familiar Has Disappeared . . .
"Wow, it really snowed last night! Isn't it wonderful? Everything Familiar has disappeared! The world looks brand new! A new year... a Fresh clean start! It's like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on! A day full of possibilities. It's a magical world, Hobbes, Ol' buddy.. let's go exploring." Bill Watterson, It's a Magical World: A Calvin and Hobbes Collection.
Getting closer to Christmas and living in Texas there truly is not an expectation of snow. Some years we get lots of ice right before or snow right after, but rarely on Christmas. We even had a snow on Thanksgiving back in 1991. Snow is a beautiful thing that God created for us. It is not mentioned often in the Bible, but it is there.
"He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, Be a mighty downpour." Job 37:6
