Snow Day

February 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Faith and the City

No school today.  The kids are home.

So, we went sledding in the park.  It was too sticky for fast runs.  Perfect, though, for thumping together a snowman (with his a loyal snow dog)!

Everyone who was out, walking through the swirl of flakes, was smiling.

Today has been a sabbath–an unexpected respite.

It felt like Robert Frost’s poem:

Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
