Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

First, did you like that scrumptious Christmas Italian Toast (OK, it's really French toast....)??? What?! You've been too busy to try it? No worries, there's still time - you have all of December to whip up a batch...or two... or three!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't even had time to make it myself, yet; but I can't wait to lift a golden forkful into my yearning palate!

If there's one thing that makes it seem like an idylic Christmas, to me, it's snow. Where I live, I have to pray like crazy to even have the remotest chance for snow. Seems that desert areas prefer sunshine raining down, not white, fluffy snowflakes!

Well, guess what I got to see today? Yep, snow! Lots and lots of it!!!! Not raining down, but sitting there in glistening heaps upon the hills and mountains, and flocked trees were abounding! As kids, we five begged my parents for a flocked tree. But...those white beauties were only for the rich and famous. We were lucky to get the green Charlie Brown tree!

So, today, driving up the interstate, I soaked it all in, feeling like I was living inside the frosty landscape that adorns Christmas cards! Thank You, Lord!!!!

We stopped and ate breakfast in the most darling cafe (in the picture). The biscuits and gravy were a rare treat! YUM!

Also, this verse kept coming to mind, "Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of war and battle" (Job 38:22-23)?

God is in control of everything!!! Even the weather does His bidding!  I'm glad He sent some of it down so that Superman and I could be surrounded by Christmas.  :)
