Waking up to a fresh blanket of snow is quite wonderful, even though I am ready for spring. The beauty of it all makes me appreciate the here and now. Spring will come, but I'm going to enjoy the quite winter months as much as I can.
Besides, snow is good for the farm. One of the most important benefits is that it keeps moisture in the ground. With our sandy soil, we need as much moisture as we can get! And, without snow, very cold and freezing temperatures could damage roots by freezing the soil deeper.
This is a good reminder to be thankful, always thankful in any and every circumstance. We can fight it, groan about it and be miserable, but ultimately God is in control. And when we truly believe this, we can rest assure that His will is a whole lot better than ours!
