Whiter than Snow

My children and I were so excited to look out this morning and see snow on the ground, and more falling!We live in Texas and snow is a very rare occurrence,of course everyone wanted to get dressed right away and get out in the beautiful whiteness.

It is afternoon now and I looked out my kitchen window to see that it is snowing even harder and huge wonderful flakes.When I looked out I saw that my yard is covered in thick,beautiful,whiteness and the song,"Whiter than Snow"came to my mind.How wonderful that Jesus can take all my wicked sins and turn them even whiter than the beautiful snow.He will do that for anyone who calls on Him :Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Whiter than Snow
"Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
I want Thee forever to live in my soul.
Break down every idol,cast out every foe.
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Whiter than snow,Yes,whiter than snow,
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
Lord Jesus ,look down from Thy throne in the skies
And help me to make a complete sacrifice.
I give up myself and whatever I know,
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Lord Jesus,before You I patiently wait;
Come now and within me a new heart create.
To those who have sought Thee,
Thou never saidst,"No."

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."

This beautiful song was written by ,James Nicholson, and first published in ,1872.It is based on Psalm 51:7

Purge me with hyssop,and I shall be clean:wash me,and I shall be whiter than snow.

Cheryl, the poem is quite beautiful. I am going to send it to one of my aunts who I know will appreciate it too.

I bet its cool to get snow when you don't usually. But I'm so glad that we've had less snow this year, and right now all the snow is melted off my yard.
