Snow is the great equalizer. Finally our yard looks as good as our neighbors. Walking to the bus stop today (with ski poles), I was appreciating the attributes of snow and thinking about a verse in Isaiah 1 “though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow…” Snow reflects light, covers a multitude of ugliness (the dead leaves in the yard, for instance), creates vivid contrast to darkness, and clears the air. Snow is quiet, beautiful and a true white. If you’ve ever gone to a paint store, you know what I mean. “White as snow, though our sins are as scarlet”… It’s God’s handiwork, inside and out. I’m so thankful.

Laura Cowan is a PMS survivor, along with her husband John, and their eight children. She adores her pastor who has counseled her through 44 years of marriage to himself. Together they enjoy quiet walks on the beach...Ha! Who are we kidding? We live on the backside of the desert. Thankfully, a very lovable flock of sheep live there, too, and let us pastor them (Calvary Chapel Bishop, California). Also, we spend a lot of time eating tiny bags of peanuts and missing connecting flights as missionaries with Poimen Ministries, whose goal is to encourage, aid, and support pastors, churches, and missionaries throughout non-larva eating parts of the world, mostly. Laura's most impressive identity rests in being a full-time beggar for grace. Not that Jesus makes her beg, it's just she’s such a piece of work. She’s managed to turn all this into fodder for conference themes and teaching in a variety of venues. Laura has published blurbs for the Chicago Sun, Sacramento Bee, and a few obscure magazines. Laura is a friend of the Karen tribe of Thai/Burma relocated to Utah, and has taught cross-cultural seminars, job training, tutoring and ESL. She is a former representative of Voice of the Martyrs and hopes you will join her in prayer and support of the Persecuted Church. View all posts by Laura Cowan firstname.lastname@example.org
