These pictures so reminded me of Isaiah 1:18 -- "Come now, let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
I love this verse which speaks so beautifully of God's love, mercy and grace!
In fact, I love it so much that I once stitched a cross-stitch version of it. I still love this design! And I do apologize for the wonky angle of the photo, but it was the best I could do given the narrowness of the hallway that these samplers are hanging in.
"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 147:16-17)
Hope you've enjoyed this look at winter in these parts!
