Aria (Bass)
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light. And they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
(Isaiah IX, 2)

white christmas

When my mom and I left the house around 9:30 this morning, there were little flecks and I realized it was actually snow. Leaving church, it was still snowing. *glees*

(At this point there are patches where it's actually sticking, but I am excited on principle more than anything else. We've barely had a winter thus far.)
