Snow!

Our campus received a surprise Thursday night when it started snowing! The lovely white blanket was pretty well melted by the time lunch rolled around, but I managed to sneak a few photos in the morning before classes. Here they are:

I was struck with the irony of this picture. My car with California plates and Loma Linda license plate frames covered with snow. It was a strange feeling…

A view of our vineyard through our peach orchard.

A cheery greeting at the entrance of our campus.

The incomplete academy boys’ dormitory, coated in white armor.

The academy girls’ dorm, looking purdy.

The spiritual lesson from the snow fall can hardly be ignored. "...though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow..." [Isaiah 1:18] The dead leaves, dried grass, and barren soil of our own righteousness can be covered with the pure, untainted righteousness of Jesus. What a marvelous Savior!
