Glorious beauty

I was overcome by the glorious beauty of our Creator during the recent blizzard that hit our campus. Our God has the power to cover entire states with a blanket of snow so deep that life as we know it is paused until we can recover. Yet despite the inches of falling snow, and the changes in our schedules, the sun still rose and shone its warmth on us as we treked through the fluffy whiteness to take pictures. The sky was still blue, and God was still the same. And I think He was pretty proud of that beautiful blizzard :)

God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
7 So that everyone he has made may know his work,
he stops all people from their labor.
Job 37:5-7

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail..."
Job 38:22
"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow."
Psalm 51:7

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool."

Isaiah 1:18
