SNOW PILED ON US over the weekend, here in the Kansas City area. It wasn’t a normal snow.
It fell thick and heavy, clinging to houses, cars, and trees…pruning many trees, in fact.
I don’t usually grab a coat and a camera whenever it snows. For snow like this, I generally grab a coat and a snowblower.
I took pictures of the snow falling. I had no idea if they would turn out at all.
After the snowfall, I trudged into the nearby woods, where I often walk Buddy the Dog. (We pulled a tick out of him yesterday. How do you get a tick in this kind of weather?)
In the woods, I set my video camera on a tripod. Then I pointed it one direction after another, each time letting the camera record the scene for several minutes. I figured I might be able to use the snowy scenes as backdrops for future videos, if they turned out okay.
They’re nothing spectacular. I won’t get a call from National Geographic, requesting permission to use any of it. But the woods painted white with snow somehow reminded me of the Painter.
God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ (Job 37:5-6).
I thought maybe it might do the same for some of you.
Here’s the link to the short video that premiered last night: Walk on a Snowy Day.
