Though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow

How much do we love snow? Living out in the sticks it's really the most excitement we get all winter and there's nothing like fresh snow. This morning when we did our 25 days of Christmas devotional (which we were 2 days behind I might add and remember that as you read on) we read Isaiah 1:18 Come let us reason together saith the Lord,though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.We talked about how God has continues to keep His promises, just like He did with Abraham, David, Zacharias, and Mary. He will keep that promise to us as we trust in Jesus.
Latter when we went out into the winter wonderland the kids started talking about that verse again. Elijah asked "what does scarlet mean again" It sparked a whole conversation that was just amazing. As we looked at the snow the kids made comments like "it's so beautiful, it's very clean, it's perfect" I explained to them how when we are hidden in Jesus we are more clean, perfect and as beautiful than the snow. The verse became very real to them. Isaiah said "I am so thankful for Jesus" and Elijah said "yeah me too He's awesome" Earlier I was beating myself up over being behind in the devotional but as always He is made perfect in my weakness!

The kids are such good sports, posing for mom's ridiculous picture when all they really wanted to do was play!
The look on Elijah's face is awesome!
Isaiah as always loved catching snowflakes on his tongue.
Elijah is just cute!
