White as Snow

This morning I sit drinking my cup of coffee and see the sun reflect off the snow. Its very bright. The world is very calm. Its not moving. Its being still. It reminds me of Isaiah 1:18 "Come, let us discuss this," says the Lord. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they will be white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they will be like wool"

I am probably not the only one who is reminded of this verse when it snows, or at least I hope I'm not. But maybe, maybe there is more to them being "white as snow" than just the color. Perhaps there is a peace, a calm, a being still that occurs when we recognize the truth of this passage. Maybe our hearts are brighter as they now reflect the Son.

White as snow--Its about more than color.
