Too Early for Snow
We live in the Midwest, where the weather can be unpredictable and unseasonably warm or cold, wet or dry, or any combination of all of them in one peculiar season. I realize that. However, I somehow missed the weather forecast for today to include snow flurries.
So when we started getting some pretty heavy snow showers, I was amazed . . . and unprepared. I happen to love winter, but usually we work up to snow season more gradually.
Fortunately for us, the huge snowflakes melted as soon as they landed on the brick pavers in the back yard.
Seeing that, and realizing I had nowhere special to go tonight, I relaxed and watched the beautiful flakes swirl around.
I also realized today was yet another day for which I am grateful. Thank you, Lord!
