Leaving A Legacy For My 3 Girls – Whiter Than Snow

leaving a legacy


As a 2-time cancer survivor, I look at life with tangible knowledge that life could end at any given moment.  None of us know how long we have here on this earth.  This legacy series to my 3 girls…my lovelies… is my way of attempting to leave a legacy for them.  To speak of what is most important for them to know from me, their forever Mom.
Psalm 57:1

Hello Lovelies,
It is a January snow day today and you 3 are just thrilled!  It is 11:30 and we are all still in our jammies.  You are all having fun on your iPods & I’m just sitting here thinking about what it is I want to tell you.

I will keep it short and simple.

The snow is beautiful outside, everything covered in white.  I think of just yesterday when I stepped in mud on our walkway, tracking it all the way up our stairs, spreading the mess. Everything was brown, grass dead.

It seems like I just blinked, and woke up to all the mess now covered in pure white.  It is so beautiful.  I know when it melts the mud and gunk will be washed away, and the dead grass will be nourished to spring green again, come spring.

And it reminds me.

This is what Jesus does for us.  He takes our mess, washes it clean on the cross, makes us pure white and new.  Gives us life.

It is so easy to get stuck in our mess and forget that we have been washed clean.  HE SEES US CLEAN.  Our mess is removed “as far as the east is from the west.”

Psalm 103:12

God sees us, covered in white by His Son.  Pure.

Next time you are down on yourself, feeling funky & a mess, remember how your Creator sees you!

All sparkly white and made NEW!

I Love You More’n,
