All the beauty of winter was on display yesterday. And here’s it’s message: We have to get out in it while it’s here.
It’s a challenge, it seems to take advantage of the beauty of something as fleeting as snow. But part of snow’s Beauty is the temporary nature of it. Those sweet, beautiful flakes. those blanketing drifts.
It’s so easy to dash toward the cold and wet and the icy. But the Beauty is real.
If we don’t indulge the wonder, we lose so much of life. And the complications are real. You’re going to be late when it snows. There’s going to be extra work. You’re likely to have to pit your strength against its implacable presence. It’s slippery. It’s Winter. It’s snow. Yet another sacred manifestation of a sacred season…
But the slippery part leads to sledding and tobogganing and hot cocoa and laughter. Such different fun that any other season of the year.
And it’s unbelievably beautiful. So mind where you walk and get out there and be amazed and amused. Happy Sabbath! Happy Snow Moon! Happy Peace!
They’re all ours to enjoy and indulge. What are we waiting for?
