If you live in North Carolina, you probably remember the big Valentine weekend snowfall Down East in 2010. Such a rare sight to see such deep beautiful snow at the coast!
Some stunning photos taken by Kathy E Davis were emailed around at the time. I was so taken by their beauty that I was inspired to write the song “Manna”. This peaceful snowfall reminded me of the Manna from heaven that God provided on the ground every morning for the Israelites in the wilderness, a gentle covering of provision.
The song begins with the depiction of the first tiny snowflake, and then carries us through Kathy’s photographic journey around the quiet town of Beaufort, NC and surrounding areas, such as Taylor’s Creek.
The underlying rhythm is much like that of a gently rocking boat. We finally come to the tapering off of the last gentle snowflake, giving the feeling of not wanting the peaceful scene to be disturbed. At least this is how I felt it when I wrote it. I hope you feel it too!
Let me know if you saw this beautiful snow. Send me pics to post if you have any!
Welcome to my Blog! I would love to hear from you!
