INTO THE WOODS

Happy Friday, brave hearts! Yesterday I woke up, peeked out the window, and saw my world covered in six inches of fluffy snow. We really only get one good snow a year, and it's kind of exciting when we get anything beyond a dusting. I hopped out of bed, threw on my snow clothes real quick, and headed out into the woods with my trusty camera to capture the magic.

Snow is such a beautiful thing to me. It falls, the world stills, and everything is covered in a blanket of white, masking the the imperfections of the world. Snow feels clean. It feels refreshing, and it feels healing. It is always a reminder to me of how Jesus has washed me white as snow, and that is the way he sees me. I see my sin, my imperfections, and my failures, but in the eyes of my savior, I am as white and clean as that fluffy, freshly fallen snow. :)

We spent our morning sledding, laughing, making snow angels, and building a snowman while waiting for snow and ice on the roads to melt. Fun was had, friends. I hope I never grow up so much where I quit enjoying the small things in life like playing in the snow. Kid at heart for life. Who's with me?
















Do you get snow where you live? Love it or hate it? What's your favorite snow related activity? Happy weekend! XOXO.

We got a bunch of slush. Boo. However.... thanks to the last owners of our house who were handicapped, there is a ramp off our back deck that makes for some pretty great ice sledding!

Ha! I'd love to have snow on the ground all winter long if it would just stay off of the roads. :)
