First Snow

“I watched till thrones were put in place,
And the Ancient of Days was seated;
His garment was white as snow,
And the hair of His head was like pure wool.
His throne was a fiery flame,
Its wheels a burning fire;"

"Fire and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For His name alone is exalted; "

“Come now, and let us reason together,”

Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,

They shall be as wool. "

“Have you entered the treasury of snow,

Or have you seen the treasury of hail,"

 "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."

"He gives snow like wool;

He scatters the frost like ashes;"

  "For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’;
Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength."

"His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;"

November is that in-between month.  Technically, according to the calendar, the season is still known as Autumn, but if we take a glance out our window, all the signs point to winter.  So as the snow keeps coming and soon staying, enjoy these little mentions of snow in the Bible.  Some are oh so comforting, other convicting, and a few just awe-inspiring.  Personally I am so grateful that, "though my sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow....."
