FROM THE WMF PRESIDENT
I was looking at verses about snow to share this month. Even my Arizona friends did some shoveling recently. Psalm 51:6 &7 and Isaiah 1:18 are familiar to most of you, “wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.” Job writes in 37:6 “He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.” (NIV) I have seen many of you post photos on Facebook and the snow for 2019 keeps piling up. Records for many of you!
For my neck of the woods we need snow in the mountains to keep us from summer fires. The seniors that I work with are quick to remind me of this.
My Dad was a farmer and he watched the news for the weather report each night. “If the good Lord’s willing and the creek don’t rise.” My husband has a weather app. Always good to be prepared. Flashlight and batteries – hats, boots, mittens and sleeping bag in the car as well as a shovel. Water and a snack. “Yes mom!”
Keep using those snow days wisely! Catch up on projects. Catch up with loved ones. Spend time in God’s Word and Prayer. And ladies I’ll be praying for God’s peace in the storms of your life.
P.S. We wear red (scarlet) on Friday to “support our troops!”
