Let It Snow!
Gary A. Fritz on the Pragmatism That Inhibits Our Spiritual Life
April 3, 2018. It's two days after Easter. Major League Baseball opened its season a full five days ago. My beloved Minnesota Twins' home opener is only two days away. And I, fresh off Easter break, am looking out the window at a delightful blanket of snow covering my neighborhood, with more slowly drifting down.
I say "delightful" at a time of year when most people would perhaps say "repulsive" because, for me, this is a snow day. What failed to happen in the heart of winter has seen fit to surprise us all here in the Twin Cities in the early days of spring. When the grass should be greening up, it is shrouded in snow. And instead of being in a classroom, I am blessed, instead, to sit in my chair, drink coffee, read a book, and gaze at the beauty of it all.
