The Storehouses of the Snow


When Job demanded an audience with God, the Lord responded with His own inquiries starting in chapter 38: “Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: ‘Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'” The questions posed, and there are whole chapters of questions, confirm that our ways and our thoughts are not His! One question God posed to Job has captured my imagination this winter. “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow…”
The locals tell us that Garrett County, site of our cozy log cabin, has already recorded 205 inches of snow this winter. So while I have no idea what the “storehouses of snow” must look like, I’ll try to show you a bit of the beauty of the pristine snow falls we ahve experienced here, and praise God for His beauty. The large mound to the left of the Jeep is our Mercury Sable. The small lump to the left of the Sable is Dave’s ATV!
The beauty and serenity of the stately evergreens and the icy flow of Bear Creek frame the life we now know in retirement. And we give God thanks for living in the midst of His beauty, His presence, His peace.
