whiteout


yesterday it started snowing around maybe ten o'clock in the morning, and it was still going strong by the time I went to bed, which was rather late into the night. The flakes fell down like feathers and the wind danced with them. Everything is perfectly, quietly covered. It's one of those earlier snows that we sometimes get, and everyone says they don't like it, but somewhere inside them they're secretly giddy, because it's like we live in the land of powdered sugar-- and it looks like Narnia.

I don't really have anything too gushy to say about thankfulness, except that I really am thankful for you guys, for being rad and sweet and awesome like supernovas. 

One thing I am thinking about this morning is how Jesus told a parable about everybody being invited to this feast. People in the city and the villages and beggars out on the streets-- he said "all things are now ready: come to the feast." 

That's ringing in my ears today, guys. I want to sharpie it on the wall of my office and stare at it for a while. We're invited, called, hunted down. Compelled to celebrate our liberation.

"All things are now ready. Come to the feast."
May your day be drenched with something like that.
