Well, the snow left faster than it came. Not long after my 10 am post, the snow stopped. When I went out around noon to get some lunch, the snow was gone!
It reminds me that most of the things of this life - pleasures, stuff and the like - are temporary. Our true identity, security and fulfillment need to be based on something that is not lose-able. When those things (identity, security, fulfillment) are wrapped up in pleasures and stuff, we are sunk when the pleasures and stuff are lost, take a nose dive or evaporate like the snow.
I am glad that my identity, security and fulfillment are based on something much bigger and eternal than myself or this world. It is based on the God of the bible, who loves me and you no matter what. That's awesome!
