Snow. The great truth teller.

Pick a town, any town that just received a deluge of snow. 5′ now on the ground.

Can you possibly conceive the sheer weight of that snow, NOW on the GROUND, that just yesterday was above your head?

Can you imagine that snow dropping in an instant, smothering everyone and everything? But no, it falls in flakes, piling up that we may see the weight and magnitude of the glory of God.

Snow tells the truth. The Creator unfolds His person, but we refuse to open that envelope of gifts, and revel in the stillness of that white, that magnificence so obvious, that immediately dismisses evolution and godlessness.

And in return what do we say? ‘It’s a hassle. It’s cold. Can’t go to the mall. Can’t go to school. It’s ugly.’

Ugly??? How depraved a mind must be to see ugliness in that engineered marvel of white weight falling from above, that orderly avalanche of feathery drops that does NOT crush us, but piles up and points to – the sheer awesomeness of Almighty God.

A blizzard or feet of snow to contend with. Inconvenient? Sometimes. Difficult to deal with? Maybe. But ugly? Hmmm.

The blanket of white across a country that quiets the earth is a sight to behold, and further testifies that as long as the earth remains, there will be cold and heat. Tell the truth today.

    I love this/ There is beauty in all things if we simply look for it.

    Snow can make even ugly towns picturesque and cozy. Shoveling it all up is quite another thing all together, lol. 😉

  3. Ha! I dislike the white stuff, Colorstorm, but I do love how it reminds us of how God hovered over the waters and how He, “made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens.”

    And so here we are today with “atmospheric rivers” currently flooding California and tons of fluffy snow elsewhere, often just floating serenely down on us. Water is incredibly heavy in all it’s forms, so it’s pretty remarkable and amazing that we really do have a giant “ocean” above us at all times.

      I’m with you. Cold and a hassle sometimes. But u are dead on with ‘oceans above.’

      I’m almost certain that our ‘modern science friends’ have it ALL wrong as to alleged ‘distances’ of everything above our heads, having the lensing and distortion effects of looking through vapor, etc.

      Yeah, evo has a good explanation for HOW the waters above and below came to be…..

      Then again, Genesis is a faultless source.

    The snow may be pretty, light flakes as romantic even , but reality is not so sweet. Snow has killed plenty and the liquid state of snow has killed many thousands as climate change is gradually taking a firm grip of this planet.

    The waters in heavens above? That is possibly guidance for flat Earth believers, however it does add some interest to life considering scientific research and space travel has debunked these outrageous claims.

      Cold does kill more people than hot weather, supposedly. I suspect that depends upon how we count the numbers, that is, to what do we attribute the deaths of the deceased. It is fairly easy to manipulate statistics.

      That said, we use to call “climate change” “global warming.” Reminds of what program managers did when I worked in the government. If a program was getting a bad reputation, they changed it name.

      The globe is not warming? No problem. Change the name. Don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. We may not know what the weather will be like, but it will be different.

      Did ColorStorm ask us to worship nature? The sky above? No. He asked to consider the work of our Creator. Is the sky above beautiful? Is what we see below beautiful too? Yes. Is it deadly too? Most certainly, but still we can live out the days allotted to us. In all our struggles and joys we can give glory to our God.

        ‘Days allotted to us.’ I copied that.

        And we can add to those days by not being stupid. Riding a motorcycle at 115 mph on public streets, killing a hundred, then blaming God for faulty asphalt….

        or drinking a keg of beer till our guts explode and blaming Coors for not making a label telling us that inbibing such volume may be harmful.

        Or blaming Him for being buried alive in the mountains by snow/ The weather forecast said ‘life threatening snow,’ but we go out driving- only to freeze to death. Plenty of warnings.

        Falling water from above- ie, frozen ice and snow, is a natural marvel that is free for the taking.

        Look at Hawaii. An island in the middle of nowhere, yet, volcanoes. Fire down under, in the middle of water everywhere. Shall we also blame God for the few deaths there? Yeah, they prob wished it snowed instead.

      hi steve/
      Ctom addressed you quite well. Have u flied in a plane lately? See those clouds? Below you but above the earth. Sound familiar? Genesis maybe as to the same idea?

      But talking strictly about the dazzling beauty of a snowed landscape. Who can argue otherwise? I could cite my own examples of unfortunate/untimely/? incidents of nature having a part in accidents or death, but guess what?

      The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord. No man has a legitimate gripe with his allocation of days.

      I’m not sure what outrageous claims I’ve made here.
