Snow From Heaven And Bread Eater

Greetings and Holykisses,

This is what I saw when I looked out my bedroom window this morning.
Another day with falling snow! ~ Think I'm gonna have to dig my old snowboots out of the bottom of my closet and set them by the door! It's absolutely beautiful out, and during my time with the Lord this morning, God even made mention of His snow!
Isaiah 55:8-11 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways, my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

As I walked outdoors, to embrace this blessing, puddleduck tracks where all over the place. Here, there, and back n forth. I've told you before, that sometimes when reading the word; I wonder if I'm getting what God is really saying? I go back and forth, and question .... "Am I getting this Lord?" I know God's word says it will never return void, but I'd missed something it also says... "But it will accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper-" And then -- in italics "in the thing whereto I sent it." Isn't it funny that in the King James version it says: in the thing? I mean... -- that I get! That's my kind of language ya know? I'm amazed this morning;.... simply amazed.
Thank you Lord for my daily bread.
And thank You for sprinkling your heavenly snow over the potting shed. I'm marveling.
Thy will be done.
