Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. Heavy snow fell, changing everything, every limb and twig. The woods were wondrous and wounded, trees bent double, branches down. Even fence posts were transfigured, beautiful and stylish in their hats.
Sticky, wet snow is perfect for snowmen but a pain to shovel, dense and heavy. The piles by the driveway are not pretty. But you keep stopping to look up and be astonished.
Afterward you look out, a little damp from the grace and pain, and wonder:
what will you do with the beauty you've been given?
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
