a day early

It came one day early, but most of us were ready to welcome a snow day!

We headed to bed with a frosting of the white stuff...

and woke up early to a white wonderland all around.
(Texas friends, these are for you :)

Our snow loving boy was one of the first to see the first signs of winter. He watched patiently as Dad plowed away out front.

 This boy loves snow and everything about it for this season of life... Before the sun even fully rose, he was up after a night of fevers and dressed to go outside.

It was all hands on deck as everyone found a role to fill to make the snowy covering a safe place for all...

Dad's path to the coop helped this boy bring breakfast up to the house...

And we are officially welcoming winter day early!

The first snow always amazes me with it's ability to make everything white as snow. It is a beautiful visual of what my Savior does for us...and I always begin the first real snow day of the year greatly humbled by this vision as I see just how white He washes away my sin.  For everything I saw before is now covered with the blinding truth of our brokenness and His saving grace. Welcome winter!! 

Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
Isaiah 1:18
