Happy New Year is the greeting for the month as we try to remember it's now a new year, 2017. Tonight at Real Women the general attitude from the ladies at the table where I sat was that resolutions are over rated. I still make my list of resolutions or goals, but there is another aspect of January I enjoy more than resolutions...snow! I love snow. I'm hoping for another January snowstorm. (Sorry!) Snow is so white, quiet, and beautiful. The accumulation of tiny ice crystals can stop a city. Snow is amazing because it calmly covers all and changes the landscape dramatically. Snow shows God's beauty, creativity, and power.  Hebrews 1:10 says, "And, Lord, in the beginning you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands." The Creator of snow and of all creation is in control of all that is on the horizon in 2017. We make resolutions and goals, but God knows when the snow is coming and how much is coming. God knows us completely, and he has a forecast for this coming season in our life too. Whenever the snow comes, knowing the Creator intimately helps us trust him through the storm.
