Whiter than Snow...

Happy Resurrection Day!

View of our backyard this morning. No, this is not the same photo from St. Patrick's Day nor is it the same snow. This fell fresh last night. I was disappointed at first because we bought these cute little Easter shoes for Blue-Eyed Girl yesterday:

But as I looked at the sparkling, pure white snow I remembered:

Psalm 51:7
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."

Matthew 28:1-7
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

It is so appropriate that the Lord chose to blanket us in the pure, white snow this morning! Do you feel clean this morning? Purified and made white by the blood He poured out? If not, take a minute to accept it - accept it for you, believe that He did it for you, ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you again. Spend this Resurrection Day clothed in righteousness and washed whiter than snow by the blood of the Lamb!
