White as snow.

Have you ever been to the snow? In Australia it generally only snows in the mountains (although, in Melbourne you just never know.) Snow is fun. Snow is exciting. For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, snow is something different from the everyday. Unlike many other parts of the world, where snow boots and snow ploughs are essentials for every family, we’re not used to living with snow every single day. Which is why snow is such a magical wonderland for many Australians. 

As kids, snow generates all sort of joyous emotions. 
Even falling over creates such overwhelming joy!

I remember when I was little, driving up the mountain to go skiing. Surrounding us was lush, green forest, and then all of a sudden one of us would begin to spot little, tiny patches of white on the side of the road. As we drove, the white patches got bigger and bigger, and the more excited we became. Within moments all we could see was a sea of magnificent white….
Snow is beautiful. It’s pristine. It’s clean. It’s pure. And it covers up mess. 

Whatever was on the ground before a fresh fall of snow is completely hidden. 
Washed away.


I love the analogy of our sins becoming white as snow. All the yuk, all the hurt, all the pain, all the sadness, all the disappointment, all the things we’ve done wrong, is all over-ridden and forgiven!

Yes and how true this is. Our past is gone and our new, redeemed life is here!
Look at this little guy below, bright red tummy and surrounded by the prettiest branches I’ve ever seen.
So I pray you have a wonderful day today, knowing you are free 
and released to be all you have been called to be. 

Happy Thursday guys 🙂
