I Love Winter

I really enjoy the winter. I'm not a "winter" person by nature (I grew up near the beach and far preferred it over the snowy days in the mountains), but after my mission and as I have gotten older, I appreciate the snow and the cold in a different way. I love watching my kids play in the snow and throw snowballs and build snowmen. I love seeing their little noses and cheeks turn red, and I love how beautiful the snow makes everything look.

The snow is melting quickly here, although I anticipate that we will get a lot more this winter. I'm hoping we do! (My yard looks horrible without it! Haha)

The first scripture that comes to mind when I think of winter and snow is Isaiah 1:18 - "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

I am so grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ that promises us that WE CAN BE FORGIVEN of our sins. To know that they can all be washed away, that they can be "as white as snow" again, is one of the most beautiful blessings I could ever imagine. I hope that my children learn and appreciate the symbolism of snow through the winter season.

What is your favorite part about winter?
