Too Much Snow and a Burning Bush 

I am grateful for the snow. I know we need the water, but I’d be fine with it if it stayed in the mountains from here on until spring. 
Today while reading, I mostly thought of questions that I want to take a little more time to think about before I move on. I’m sensing important answers are waiting for me in the story of Moses and the burning bush, but I need to sit down and focus to work through it, and today was not the day that happened. 
Some of today’s questions from Exodus 3:

Why did God tell Moses to take off his shoes? How does taking off shoes show reverence for a holy place? Have I ever missed a burning bush level experience because I wasn’t paying enough attention to hear and (figuratively) remove my shoes? 

“When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.”  “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.”

Exodus 3:4‭-‬6 NIV
