A snow day off from work. The concept itself is an index of life being far better than it really needs to be. We happen to be in a particular place and time where snow allows us pause and reprieve, when at so many other times, or right now in so many other places, there would be no rest for the weary, no matter how bad the weather. We give thanks.
We munch on high end, healthy snacks purchased at a Quarryville reseller at a 80% markdown, due to being a bit past the best by date. In our opinion, 80% off and past the best by date is the real best buy date. Speaking of, we’re on a date right now. A mug of grog is our price to sit and read together for a couple hours. From Jennifer’s book:
If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
That’s a summons to look upon the greatest of such men–Jesus Christ–by the pen of Ms. Rowling in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Over and against all comparison, He treats inferiors most wondrously.
I am reading Genesis in Space and Time, by Francis Schaeffer. Written in 1972, he observes:
As humanists are fighting today against prejudice, they have little philosophical base for their battle. But as a Christian I do: No matter who I look at, no matter where he is, every man is created in the image of God as much as I am… Suddenly I have great value, and I understand how it is that I am different [from all other things]. I understand how it is that God can have fellowship with me and give me revelation of a propositional nature.
May it be.
