First Snow Fall

I live in the Pacific Northwest where snow during the holiday season used to be a rare thing.  But in recent years it seems we get snow every year at this time.  As a child growing up in Canada – snow was expected and NOT a treat.  It was really cold from October until well past my birthday in March.  In pictures from my childhood – I can see snow on the ground out the window while celebrating another birthday.

Here in the Northwest we don’t get tired of it – at least at first.  It’s a novel thing and can make you feel just like a kid again.  Especially the first snowfall.

As I am writing this – the snow is falling in a beautiful cascade of different sized crystal flakes – making the street and yard all white and ‘Narnia-like’.  And I can’t stop myself from taking pictures of it – and just staring out the window.  It is truly one of nature’s most AWESOME treats for us to feast our eyes on.

And so with ‘holiday’ music playing on my Pandora radio – I am a very happy girl today – and may not get a whole lot accomplished – but it is VERY understandable – as anyone who lives in the Northwest knows:  It just may not last long – or even be here tomorrow, so we will relish the moment and dream of being a child again – where things like Santa, mistletoe, Christmas trees, surprises, warm crackling fires and hot cocoa were always something fun to look forward to.

And for your listening and viewing pleasure I have added a video of one of my favorite’s from Michael W. Smith‘s first Christmas album entitled, ‘First Snow Fall’.

Enjoy and God Bless!

Well it seems that SNOW is in the forecast for the Seattle area later this week and I thought it appropriate to post this video from ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ – to get you in the mood!

 

Enjoy! And bundle up!

 

Snow!!

The first snowflakes appeared out my window today – as I was busy preparing and was so frustrated with my computer software for my camcorder.

When I saw the sweet little flakes floating down – it was a magical time for me – it always is – whenever it snows – no matter how old I get, the feelings are still the same.

My husband brought me a single red rose today.  That and the snow – made it an especially good day – regardless of the trouble with my computer – and the memories that a year ago bring to my mind.  Memories are like that.  They are neither good nor bad – they just simply are.  I remember all the snow last year at this time and thought I would never want to see those little flakes again – but I was wrong.  I am glad to see them again.  It is as if a whole year has gone by in a blink of an eye – the sights and sounds of Christmas are back again – the smells and wonderful things around me – and most of all – the things that are timeless – love, peace, joy, contentment, hope for tomorrow, our relationship with Jesus Christ – the reason for our happiness – our reason to go on – our reason to go and make a difference in our world.

A Rose – the falling Snow.
