What Does Snow Have in Common With the Love of God?

What does snow have in common 
with the love of God?  
Like snow falling quietly
it covers everything and freezes them,  
but beautifies the landscape  
and changes it;
so is the love  
and the Grace of God
it comes quietly and covers everything. 
It freezes our passions,  
beautifies life 
and changes everything, 
inside us and around us.
- Saint Amphilochios Makris
