Two weeks ago we were under it. Two weeks ago it kept us home.

We pushed it, shoveled, piled and plowed it.  It took a lot of effort to keep life moving in spite of all that snow.

Yesterday and today the sun came out, the temps came up. Way up. We hit 72 today (YaY!)

Silently, agreeably, without a hint of resistance, most of it melted and went away.

The countryside I drove through this afternoon was was covered with a deep blanket of snow just a few days ago.  Today it’s a promising winter brown with hints of green rushing to show through.  

I thought to myself,  I love how the earth warms under the rays of the sun. I want my heart to respond that readily to the warmth of His word and His love. Always.
