Cleansing

I know this is my second post in one day, but I just couldn't help myself. Today has been an absolutely amazing day!! The Lord blanketed us with 5+ inches of snow and it is still coming down. It has covered my yard, the sidewalk, the street and all the trees. It is so beautiful. We had many things to do today but they were cancelled because of the weather. So, we sat and watched the snow fall. It was so pristine and white, so bright as it reflected the sun with a blinding purity. My entire world is white, cleansed and pure. Gone are the bitter feelings over selfish, hurtful family members. Gone is the anxiety about upcoming speaking engagements. Gone is the worry over friends who are ill. Gone is guilt and shame over my own failings. Just as God has cleansed my world, He has reminded me that He has also cleansed my heart. Tonight, as I stood at the kitchen sink, doing dishes and watching yet more snow come decorate my yard, I say a prayer. I thank God for His majesty, for His beautiful creation and for His subtle reminder that He has washed me whiter than snow.

How do you know how to say what is on my heart? I also am watching the snow, thankful that I am warm and the kids are all safe. All is clean and pure and peaceful. Peace to you, my friend,

Love

Neva ... we had snow here too. The thing that's amazing about snow is it really shows up dirt for what it really is. I remember a story about a little white house that always looked so clean and white. It was so well kept. Till one day a blanket of white snow fell and it showed, on the house, every flaw and every bit of dirt.

It always reminds me of my life. I think I'm "looking good" with my white, clean life and then I take a few seconds to look at Jesus and it begins to show me ever flaw in my life. I look pretty good compared to the bad of this world, but I look pretty bad compared to Jesus.

How precious is the blood that can take the darkness of our hearts and the stain of our guilt and make us white as snow. Very good post.

Whiter than white---cleaner than clean---purer than pure.

Thank you Jesus
