"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
Close your eyes and imagine this...
It's Friday -- Valentine's Day celebrations are slated with sweet parties in all classrooms, fifth grade students are honoring their Grandparents with personal letters and a luncheon. Excitement, giggles and love fill the air... and then the unthinkable happens... it starts snowing!!!
First it's a flake or two sauntering in the air, then a dazzling flurry and soon a full-blown blizzard. We watch tiny, delicate flakes transform into biscuit-sized flakes dancing gracefully through the winter sky. All are mesmerized and thrilled.
Word spreads to the teachers, "we will remain in school," since weather experts predict the snow will fall for just 2 hours. With a temperature increase, school dismissal will be safer at the regular time. So what's a teacher to do??? Take the students out and enjoy this rare, spectacular beautiful event! A day of teaching is already under siege with a pending major sugar attack, making it the perfect time to relax and give in to some snowy fun.
Reminiscing over this unexpected snowy scenario, it feels like an incredible dream. But this dream really did come true making beautiful memories for everyone and producing much fun and laughter to small and big kids.
Thank You, Father, for Your precious love and sweet surprises. Oh, how You delight us! You rejoice over us with singing... and sometimes with snow.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
