Our kids are enjoying this novelty called snow. They've thrown it, rolled in it, made snow-angels in it, sled on it and eaten it. We've shoveled it, gotten our van stuck it in (multiple times!), marvelled at it, and, yes, mumbled at it. But, in about a year when we are melting in the heat of Rio I'm sure we'll miss it again (oh, to be content!). On Sunday while the pastor spoke of Christ's sacrifice for us, through the windows we could see large, brilliant white snowflakes falling - timely reminders that, though our sins be as scarlet, in Christ we are cleansed and made white as snow. For that, we are eternally grateful.

Some Christmas and Birthday family fun.
