There’s something almost sacred about a fresh blanket of snow, isn’t there?

I mean, who isn’t in awe watching it snow?

I love to walk in snow, too, and even though I cannot retrace the footsteps of my life, quite frankly,

I’m not sure I want to.

I do, however, look forward to the blank canvas of endless possibilities that lie in wait, those that are yet to be colored with love and laughter and song and blessing!

I want to dream about a future that I may never have,

and

I want to set goals that I may never reach.

But mostly,

I want to have a pure heart, a heart worthy enough to be cleansed as white as snow.

Dear God:

I am seeking purity.

As long as I am in this frail human form, I will continue to ask for your forgiveness.

Forgive me, Lord, when I make choices that do not please you.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Remind me daily to seek your will, so that I will not be tempted to look back to where I have been, but ahead to where you lead.

Amen
