Scripture at Sunrise 4.20.2011

“Now the servants and officers had made a charcoal fire, because it was cold, and they were standing and warming themselves. Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.” -John 18:18

If Holy Week is icy, and snows your flowers enfold, // Remember, His last night was brutal, bitter, cold. -John Piper, via Twitter

Scripture @ Sunrise 1.28.09

Snow & Ice…has Isaiah 1:18 entered your mind? 
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.”  -Isaiah 1:18

Before all this messy weather came through (but isn’t it pretty?!), I was sitting in my car Sunday night before my flute lesson as snow was quickly falling.  I couldn’t help but think of that verse and how my nasty, dirty sins were washed as WHITE as the snow that was falling!  Oh, I was excited!  Do you ever have one of those moments?!  And to top it all off, I was listening to There is a Fountain from my T4G CD.  Wow…it was heavenly! 

Then, comes Tuesday.  My phone rang at 5:55 a.m. with a recorded message telling me I had to go to class at 11 a.m.  Thanks, people.  So I slid to class.  Not once.  Twice.  Of course, the only classes that were mandantory yesterday were the times that I had class.  But, to be honest, I really kind of had fun out there sliding around, pretending to be Kristi Yamaguchi doing triple axels outside the Journalism Building. 

So, my dear siblings in Christ, I leave you with a slideshow of Wainrights’ Icecapades 2009: Day 1. 

I realize many of you are without power.  Oh my goodness, how I wish you were at my house right now.  I want to show you hospitality.  I don’t know if it would be worth risking life and limb to get here, but just remember you’re always welcome.  :o)

Scripture @ Sunrise 12.18.08

The Meaning of the Snowflake 


Every new snowflake comes to the earth

as a picture of our Saviour’s birth,

because they are sent from up above

and remind us of God’s care and love.

Each one is so intricate and small

because Christ sees the details of us all,

and just as two are never the same

the Lord knows and calls us each by name.

Snowflakes gently cover the world in white

and hide what’s unlovely from our sight,

showing us how He covers our sin

and gives us His grace when we come to Him.

So may every snowflake bring Christ to mind

and in every bit of white may you find

a reason to celebrate anew

and a reminder of His love for you.
