First Snow

Yesterday marked the first snowfall of the season. There wasn't much, and it didn't last long, but for a short while, things looked a bit sugar-coated. I love the sense of whimsy and wonder that comes with snow. And while it's not yet technically winter, I've developed an appreciation for that season while living in Korea. To me, it represents a time of introspection and reflection, as well as an opportunity to ponder the magnitude of God's sovereignty --His ways often seem incomprehensible to mere mortals yet are perfectly ordered and part of His plan.
God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; He does great things beyond our understanding.  He says to the snow, "Fall on the earth," and to the rain shower, "Be a mighty downpour."  So that all men He has made may know His work, He stops every man from his labor.   -Job 37:5
