20 Days Until Christmas

Many places already have snow on the ground - we do not. In our area we may not see snow, or at least it will only be here for a day and then disappear. That's one of the trademarks of the South. A white Christmas would be picturesque this year, but it's probably not a probability here.

But that also means no shoveling, no tracking into the house and no scraping off the car in the morning. Preventing the extra work is a lovely thought, but sometimes it would be nice to watch a gentle snow fall from the window by the fireplace.

She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. Proverbs 31:21

The snow fall reminds us of Christ's purity. The snow is completely clean and pure until it hits the earth. It is perfectly white until man and things man has created touch it and destroy it. The joy of the Christian woman is that Christ's purity never changed - He came to earth sinless, was perfect while He was on the earth and returned to Heaven retaining all of His purity. We can see that beauty of perfection in each tiny snowflake.

Snow reminds us of how God sees each one of us. They say no two snowflakes are alike, that there are subtle differences in each one that make it unique. Even when we feel like just another face in the crowd, the Lord knows our name, our heart, our desires, our imperfections and our needs. We are completely unique compared to everyone around us, whether we feel like it or not. We are special, precious individuals in God's eyes, just as we see millions of unique snowflakes each winter.

This Advent season, look at the snow fall as a time of remembrance, not just something else on your to-do list. Take a few moments to reflect on Jesus Christ's perfection and the perfect He sees in us, not in sinlessness but in being the perfect "us" we are meant to be. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
