Christmas time

Christmas time is a beautiful time of year. Beautiful is the comfort of being with those you love and those who love you. Beautiful is the warmth of the fire (albeit fake) and of the Christmas tree lights. Beautiful is comsumption of the scrumptious food you eat with utter abandon. Beautiful is the joy of giving to others (and, of course, of receiving from them). Beautiful is the peace that comes with knowing the Creator of the Universe was born a humble babe so many years ago. Beautiful is the hope that comes from the One Who gave all that we might live. Beautiful is the anticipation of spending eternity with the One Who loved more than we can ever know.
And beautiful is the snow that occasionally comes around Christmas. We experienced a blizzard here in Denver. At our house, we received more than 3 feet of powdery snow. This is great for viewing but not for traveling. My brother and his wife and baby were suposed to fly in yesterday. Alas, they could not, as DIA has been shut down since noon yesterday. It might not open until tomorrow at noon. They probably won't get here until Sunday. This is dissappointing, but not devasting. They will still arrive, and we will have the best Christmas of the year. Here are a few pictures of what the results of a blizzard look like.
As a reference, that mailbox is twice as tall as me.

That is all.
