Unexpected Snow

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.
