It’s snowing. Now no one can see my messy yard. Everything looks pretty and white.

I like to keep a good few inches of snow in my relationships as well:

“how are you?”

“Oh I’m great! and you?”


That’s a snow conversation. don’t let people see what is underneath: the ugly stuff, the messy stuff. The problem is that you’ve got to get to that stuff if you ever want to take care of it.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. – Matt 23:27

    Our yard isn’t messy!

    I learned a lesson (the hard way) when I first started blogging: Never make a point in a way that might make your wife look bad. šŸ™‚

    Seriously, though, cut him slack, Stephanie. This is a great post! (And everyone would blame Dan for the messy yard.)

    I’ve learned another lesson over the last few years as well: regardless of what you find underneath the “snow,” regardless of how messy and unkempt and cluttered, it’s always more beautiful than the snow.

      Everyone knows the yard is a reflection of the husband, not the wife.

      I agree about what is under the “snow.” It is more beautiful and much more important!

    The problem with “snow,” is that it freezes what’s underneath.
