Far too the snow he says. “Fall upon the earth…” Job 37:8a

As I listened to the evening news, I learned that another storm was headed this way. I sighed and thought of all the headaches and backaches it would bring, shoveling the sidewalks and driveway, allowing extra time to drive everywhere. I watched as the first snowflakes fall. As a child I remember how we enjoyed catching the flakes on our tongues. I remember rolling large snow balls, building snowmen, and having snow ball fights with the neighbors, sliding down the hill and just having fun.

These memories help me understand why Jesus said, “We must become like little children to enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3) Children see the wonder of it all.
