Saturday evening the snow began and lasted through late yesterday afternoon. We didn't get much more than a few inches but it was heavenly. We've had a normal winter for this area; a bit of snow here and there that lasts for a few days. Last year was heavier than normal but not as bad as two winters ago when there were back to back blizzards. We are blessed to live in an area of Colorado that isn't hit with snow as much as the Rockies. For those of us still adjusting it is perfect and we love it. I so appreciate all wheel vehicles though; yesterday we dropped my car off at the shop for repairs and we got a rental car. Cute little car-a Malibu but dear hubby said it felt like he was on a roller skate driving it. There was no traction whatsoever and I am thankful we were able to park it in the garage where it will stay until we take it back. At least hubby's car is all wheel drive, otherwise I probably would be housebound until the roads were clear. The beauty of the snow thrills my heart and make a reflect on several verses from one of my favorite Psalms.
"Purify me with hyssop and I shall be clean; Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow." "Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me." "O Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Thy praise." Psalm 51:7,10,15
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
