Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.

It finally SNOWED!!!!!

I can't believe I am excited about snow but we have not had any this season and I was really getting worried that we might not get any before Christmas. I know this sounds crazy but it just doesn't seem like Christmas if there isn't any snow. I grew up in Southern California my whole life and then lived in Phoenix Arizona for the first 10 years of our marriage. This is why for some friends and family they probably are saying you always had Christmas without snow.Yes this is true, but once you have experienced Christmas with snow it is a whole new world. Kind of like when you experience Christmas with Christ, a whole new world.

So needless to say I am a little excited. We only got about 2 inches but tomorrow night we are supposed to get 10!!! Yeah!! Sledding here we come.

I don't think we can be friends any longer - your words here create within me - weather envy! And let me just say - because I gReW uP in the snow - you think you won't miss it when you move away from it, but the truth is - you do! Christmas (and winter) devoid of sNoW is just. not. right.

Would LOVE for you to post a picture of the white stuff once you get much of it!

I agree! We miss the snow too. The kids were asking when it will snow and sadly I had to let them know that we would have to drive to play in it. We had the blessing of have snow last Christmas and loved it!

I guess we get to just celebrate the joy of having Christ at Christmas, which is the best blessing of all. Miss ya!

So very true! Christmas without Christ and without snow just aren't the same. Too bad we have 90 degree weather in Uruguay when it's Christmas time...and this year we are in So Cal for Christmas. So no snow...but Christ is with us everywhere!
