He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes.17 He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs; who can stand before his cold? 18 He sends out his word, and melts them; he makes his wind blow and the waters flow. Psalm 147: 16-18

A weather forecast and a wisdom directive. Psalm 147 directs us to praise the Lord. For He takes care of the cycle of the seasons and gives the Word of Life to His people. We are alerted to read both the book of Nature and the book of Life, so that we may praise the Lord for all His wondrous care.
