In the Still of a White Night

It is amazing that with all of the sin and tumult of this world, one can still find the beauty of nature. Tonight, with the snow tapering off, a single star visible in the heavens, a downy white tapestry and snowy silence* show that God is a gracious God. How else would this quietness begging for reflection and awe of the beauty exist so long after the Fall...?

*Snowy silence is my phrase for the absolute quiet during/after a snowfall, especially one that drops quite a bit. If you are familiar with snow, you know what I mean. Every breath of wind is noticeable, and there seems to be no sound around. Our subdivision is like that tonight; seemingly in anticipation of the coming of Christ.
