A Snow Day – A Thing of Wonder

A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. – Susan Orlean

 A “thing of wonder.” Because snow can even make teenagers act like little angels.DSC_6010We rarely get snow like this in our area.   DSC_6024

Everything we had planned over this busy weekend was cancelled, except for having our daughter, Julia, home from college.  She had originally planned to come to Portland for a special event…but it was cancelled.


Even church was cancelled, so we played hard.  I experienced God in this gift of snow, like a beautiful worship song. DSC_5940 DSC_5962 DSC_5965The storm of the year.  DSC_5968Emotion, Love, Passion, Happiness, Loss, Sadness, Stress…isn’t life complicated?DSC_5982DSC_6046 - Version 2

I lost a friend this last week. My friend, Julia (we named our girl after her), battled cancer for almost five years. She leaves behind her husband and four young children.

I experienced sadness this last week.

I experience life too. DSC_6162


This weekend was a gift. The snow was exactly what I needed.
