April Snow

"Come, let us discuss this," says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they will be as white as snow; though they are as red as crimson,
they will be like wool."
Isa. 1:18

This morning as we all woke up we were greeted with a winter wonderland! This is quite an event for London so excuse me if I get a little excited! I rushed out with my camera into the garden to get some snaps before it melted (it was all gone by lunchtime). That little splash of red is a camellia that has been out for a couple of weeks but it got the shock of its life this morning! We were all reminded at church how wonderful it is that God has forgiven us and made us as pure as snow. Have you ever noticed how bright the white of snow is? God sees us like that. Perfect and pure. Praise Him!

What a wonderful surprise for you this morning! Hope you enjoyed it! And have a great warm trip!
A freshly fallen snow always reminds me that God has made us whiter than snow. What a blessing!!!
