As White As Snow....

"Come now, and let us reason together," saith the Lord. "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."    Isaiah 1:18 
This morning when we woke up everything was covered in 6 1/2 inches of snow. It was absolutely gorgeous! The verse in Isaiah came to my mind, "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." The snow is pure. Whiter than any white we can see! Our dog is white and on any other day looks so bright and white...but today, against the snow, her fur looked dingy. Sin makes our souls dark and dingy. Try as we may, we are incapable of cleaning things spiritually so to speak or making ourselves pure...only Jesus can do that.  If we confess our sins and ask Jesus to come into our lives, He purges us of all the darkness...all the dirty, dingy spots that we have on our soul from sin. He cleans out all of the gunk and makes us as pure as snow. He gives us a fresh start, a new beginning of purity. All we have to do is ask AND submit to the will of God. 

After a hearty breakfast of 7 grain waffles, curried eggs and maple sausage, we all went outside to play in the snow! We had great fun and were absolutely exhausted by the time we came back inside. 
Here are some pictures of our winter wonderland family time!
