Today, fluffy white globs fell upon our neighborhood. Snow! We haven’t even raked our yard from falling autumn leaves, and the snow dared to come unannounced. It’s beautiful and astonishing, and I realize how much unexpected things for which I’m not prepared often usher in beauty and the kind of pause I need for worship.
It’s a day for hot chocolate and a few Christmas carols. It’s a day to gaze out the window, turn the heat on, and bundle up with cozy socks, slippers, and blankets.
It’s an unexpected joy.
