I love the first snow fall of the season. It always seems to transform the world as everything is covered in a blanket of white. Sounds are muffled. Hurry is often impossible.
Somehow. Some way. The snow makes us slow down. It causes us to pause in the busy-ness we usually live in.
Our response to the pause is what matters. We have two choices.
We can get frustrated and angry.
Or we can choose to enjoy the slower pace. We can choose to enjoy the pause - enjoy the quiet.
There really is no use in getting frustrated and angry over it. It won't change anything. It just wastes our energy.
When we choose to enjoy the slower pace and the quiet, we put ourselves in a place to hear from God. A place to recognize His voice in our lives.
