I love snow. I love the wonder, the texture, and how it blankets the earth in a beautiful coat of white, giving the appearance of purity and peace. Mind you, I’m not a huge fan of driving in it, but living in the Midwest you learn or perish.
Have you ever taken time to look at snow? I mean really look at it. No two flakes are the same. Each one is handcrafted by God in a way unique from all the others. They reflect light, sparkling like diamonds in the sun. One flake by itself doesn’t change the landscape, but put together with the others, and a dark world suddenly becomes bright.
We’re a lot like snowflakes. Each one of us has been handcrafted by God, unique from others. We’ve been given different talents and abilities–meant to be used for His honor and glory. If we live righteously, we reflect the Light, sparkling in the Son. One human on his own can’t really change the landscape. But put together with others, and a dark world can suddenly become bright.
“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?” Job 38:22
She thought she had it all. Until she discovered the treasures in the snow.
Country music singer/songwriter Raelynn Rivers is a has-been. According to the latest gossip magazines, that is. Her last number-one hit was six years ago, and her songwriting ability has vanished. Her foundering career is all she has left, and she’s determined to once again hold the title of “Country Music Queen.” But Raelynn’s dreams are derailed when a coal mine collapses in her home town of Eve Hollow, West Virginia, trapping her daddy and brother inside.
The man in charge of the mine rescue is Lane Ryan, her childhood best friend and the former fiancé she abandoned twelve years ago for her career. In the snow-covered mountains of Appalachia, Raelynn reconnects with family and rediscovers her musical abilities—and her faith. And no one inspires her more than Lane. She’s finally ready for a relationship, but the secret Lane carries around is as big as Coal Mountain.
Will Raelynn sacrifice her title, or say goodbye to Lane forever?
SNOW. Take a closer look. There’s more than meets the naked eye.
