Every Marriage Needs a Snow Day, That's Why God Invented Snow!



You're snowed in!  It's honeymoon time! Take advantage of this do-nothing-but-love-your-spouse day! Stay in your PJ's! Bake cookies! Stay in bed!

Married couples are too busy. In their rush, love and time are lost to the hecticness of life. Sad, when lovers do catch site of each other, they may be too tired for more than a quick kiss in the air hoping the embrace reaches the one they love, but can't find time for or are too tired to enjoy.

Now is your time. 
God's given you a snow day.

Dan and I have wonderful memories of our first snow day together. In January 1971, married just a few months, we were stranded in our little apartment in Ithaca, NY. A snow emergency was declared, and no vehicles were allowed on the road. Funny. Pizzas were delivered by snowmobile to hungry folks for like three days.

We baked chocolate chip cookies, stayed in bed for days, and loved being married.

How romantic. 
Really romantic. 
And quiet. 

Snow is so quiet. I love it. I hope you love it too and enjoy these days when God shuts down the world and says, 

Every marriage needs a snow day.
That's why I invented snow.

Well, He didn't say that, I did.

 But God does say:

"May your fountain be blessed,  and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth." Proverbs 5:18

Rejoice in your spouse! God gave you a snow day. Rejoice!

I'm smiling already, with a twinkle in my eye, wondering how many babies will be born nine months from this snow storm. Make sure you name her after me!

Enjoy Snowy Splashes of Serenity on your love today,
