 In case you hadn't noticed yet...
It's snowing.
Again. {sigh}

Charlie Hall's song Scenes came at the perfect time today! 
I needed a reminder...

Chill and cold and flakes of snow
Ice and sleet, frost and cold
Each storm cloud and thunder bolt
Lifts my mind to You

Every work and every power
Every second of every hour
Fall of dew and sweet rain showers
Lifts my mind to You

Summer wind, fire and heat
Autumn leaves and blooms of spring
Ocean waves and mountain streams
Lifts my mind to You

I see You in every scene
I bet You are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So You'll keep reminding me of You

I see You in every scene
I bet You are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So You'll keep reminding me of You

As I lay me down to sleep
As I walk on city streets
As I laugh with friends and feast
It lifts my mind to You

As my children play and run
In the news with wars and guns
In the church where songs are sung
It lifts my mind to You

Deep inside the beggar's eyes
As for sweet love I fight
On the radio at night
It lifts my mind to You

I see You in every scene
I bet You are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So You'll keep reminding me of You

Painting pictures of your love
You lift my mind up
Reminding me of You
My heart comes alive

I see You in every scene
I bet You are thinking about me
I have such a short memory
So You'll keep reminding me of You

Thank you, Lord, for reminding me of You today...even if it was through more snow--more beautiful intricately made snowflakes.  Only You could mastermind Your Creation to be so amazing.

I've only heard one other song by Charlie Hall and I loved it. This one has great lyrics, especially for (another) snowy day! :)

What? And I'm moving back to Iowa? What am I thinking? :)

this snow was really pretty though...really wet, each individual flake so wonderful.
