Being in MI, and there being plentiful snow, I think it's fitting as a fellow Michigander to have a devotion to Our Lady of the Snows. :) The story and devotion goes all the way back to 352 AD, one of the oldest devotions to Our Lady.
With all the beauty of a snowfall coming down outside, Jesus is certainly using the symbolism there in my own life. White, often symbolizing purity, is something that Jesus continues to grow in me, gently, like a snowfall perhaps.
I continue searching for HIM, yet knowing that I am already found by Him. "I love you, and you are Mine," is often a phrase Jesus speaks to my heart; and thus reverberates from Him to all that He loves. I know that my Father in Heaven will show me what He wants of me. Patience is key. I am discerning a particular religious community right now, and through that, will continue to trust.
I've also been reminded and come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be safe in Our Lord's Arms. He so wants us to know that we are safe.
"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior...So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." (Isaiah 43:1b-3a, 41:10)
Sometimes, it is just good to rest in His arms. I am His child.
Our Lady of the Snows, Pray for us!
