Snow in Baghdad

What a surprise this must have been! I heard reports on GMA that many Iraqis where overjoyed at the sight of their first snow and felt it was a sign of peace. My prayers are that true peace will soon come to this broken land.

"Although the white flakes quickly dissolved into gray puddles, they brought an emotion rarely expressed in this desert capital snarled by army checkpoints, divided by concrete walls and ravaged by sectarian killings — delight."
What a great gift from the One who these precious people need most of all.
