Day 323: Snow and Presence

Today the snow came. I’ve been longing for it since about October, willing the temperature to drop. I love snow!

Seeing the Kerith Centre covered in snow is something I’ll never get bored of. The building itself is pretty cool, but snow has the ability to transform anything into something astoundingly beautiful. I love to witness it. When our world is covered in snow, we are often forced slow down and take it all in. In my experience, people who experience the snow are often exposed to deep joy, taking time to enjoy the world as it was created for us to. Some are distracted by the challenges that snowfall brings, focussing more on that then the miracle that is unfolding before their eyes. I don’t quite understand it today, but I’m sure I’ve been the same in the past; I’m sure I’ll be the same in the future. It’s funny though, because if we choose to ignore snow, it could potentially be a choice to take our own lives into our hands and risk the dangers that lie in the road ahead with nothing to guide us. It seems crazy when put like that, but it’s true! If I’m completely honest, it constantly amazes me that snow is so pure, and yet we get to experience it! What a privilege!

Well, now that I think about it, snow reminds me of something else…let’s try that paragraph again:

Seeing the Kerith Centre covered in God’s presence is something I’ll never get bored of. The building itself is pretty cool, but God’s presene has the ability to transform anything into something astoundingly beautiful. I love to witness it. When our world is covered in God’s presence, we are often forced slow down and take it all in. In my experience, people who experience God’s presence are often exposed to deep joy, taking time to enjoy the world as it was created for us to. Some are distracted by the challenges that God’s presence brings, focussing more on that then the miracle that is unfolding before their eyes. I don’t quite understand it today, but I’m sure I’ve been the same in the past; I’m sure I’ll be the same in the future. It’s funny though, because if we choose to ignore God’s presence, it could potentially be a choice to take our own lives into our hands and risk the dangers that lie in the road ahead with nothing to guide us. It seems crazy when put like that, but it’s true! If I’m completely honest, it constantly amazes me that snow is so pure, and yet we get to experience it! What a privilege!
