sacrament of snow
This is a picture of my dog taken this morning. He simply adores being in the snow. Sometimes he'll just lie down in the stuff and gaze in the distance. Do dogs do anything approaching prayer? I think my Shetland Sheepdog could teach me plenty about peace with God. He might even think of snow as a sacrament, especially fitted (for him, anyway) for that very purpose.
