Snow day

This lovely photo is from Baptist Bible Hour.
Yes, just as it has been doing almost everywhere the past couple of days (or so it seems), the snow is falling here in northern New England, too.  It's falling heavily and we may get as much as a foot when all is said and done sometime tomorrow.  As I watch the snow fall thick and fast, it seems as if we may get even more.

My thoughts turn to the Bible and what it says about snow in the books of Job and Psalms.  I know snow is mentioned in a number of other Bible books, but these verses came to my mind and I thought I would share them:

"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?  or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail ... ?
"Out of whose womb came the ice?  and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
"The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen." (Job 38:22, 29-30)

And here is the answer as to where the snow, frost, and ice come from:

"God thundereth marvelously with His voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.
"For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength ...
"Out of the south cometh the whirlwind, and cold out of the north.
"By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened." (Job 37:5-6, 9-10)

"He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth; His word runneth very swiftly.
"He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
"He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?"  (Psalm 147:15-17)

Beautiful ... just like the snow itself.


  1. This is exactly what we need to hear right now especially with the winter we have had this year. Thank you for posting. This winter certainly has given new awareness to the saying "Patience is a virtue."Have a wonderful day. And it is snowing as I type this. ~Cindy

  2. Thanks for stopping by to comment on this snowy day, Cindy! Yes, it is snowing again here too. Just found out my grandkids are having another "early out" from school today -- they had one last week, plus the entire day on Friday. They are actually getting tired of having time off from school. What an unbelievable winter it has been. Yes, you are right ... "patience is a virtue" takes on fresh meaning, doesn't it?
