|Experiencing God's Presence in the snow

Yesterday in my journal I wrote about how I was going to go outside and play with my eight lb. pupdog. Well she's skin and bones so the weather was probably frigid. She ran around for a bit and then wanted back inside. She looked so precious in her little red and purple sweater against the pearly white snow. I was all bundled up and I didn't want to go inside just yet so I decided to take a walk. I walked around our block which is bigger then a normal one and I walked to a different neighborhood with the big houses. I love looking at the big nice houses and just imagining one day that God will grant me with a nice, homey place. The houses looked pretty in the snow as they usually do. =] People thought I was probably crazy for walking when it was pouring down snow but one of the main reasons I walk is because I spend time with God. When I'm walking by myself, no matter where, I'm talking, singing, praying, or praising Him. Last night when I was walking in the snow enjoying his creation, I mainly just sang one phrase over and over. I tend to believe that if I just sing one phrase and mean it then it means a lot more. If I sing a whole song, I mainly focus on the lyrics instead of Who I'm singing it to in the first place. My walk yesterday was not only refreshing but rejuvenating! All winter I've been craving snow so I can relax and drink hot chocolate and watch it, but I realized I never really was relaxed, I needed to go out and experience the gorgeous weather that God presented for us and actually spend more time with Him. Yesterday was when I realized that I need to experience God's gift of life more, instead of just looking through a window at the magnificent greatness!
