It has been snowing, raining, and everything else! 21,000 people lost their electricity, but thank the Lord we did not! Today we awoke to an amazing display of God’s creativity. I am simply in awe of the spectacular beauty of how the ice crystals capture the light and create prisms of rainbow colors or simply sheer translucent radiance against the vivid azure sky. As the wind gently blows through the trees a crackling sound is heard. After the storm, beauty is revealed. That is so much like God. He never wastes our sorrows. And he works all things for good for those who love him and called by according to his purpose. His purpose. Yes, he has a purpose for our lives, even the icy storms.
