Snowstorm in Curve, Tennessee (3/7/09)

13 inches is a lot of snow where I come from, and that is exactly what we experienced on Saturday night, March 7, here at home. It was enough to render our country roads impassible and to move even a stodgy preacher like me to consent to cancelling Sunday services. I am putting these up a little late, but if you have ever lived in West Tennessee, you know what it is to be fascinated by the mystery of Job 38:22, “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow . . . ?” I am still marveling.

Snowbound: taking in the scene from the door of the parsonage on Sunday morning.

"Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love . . .

 

. . . that we may rejoice and be glad all our days." Psalm 90:14
