I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:14
I LOVE SNOW!! Even though I live where it only snows a little, it’s enough to keep everyone on their toes all winter long, watching the clouds, sniffing the air, feeling the deep chill, trying to remember how many fogs there were in August and what color the wooly worms were. Y’all don’t do that where you live? Oh, I’m sorry. All that adds to the fun of creating a few paper flakes to hang in the window while we’re watching and wishing. If you need help making snowflakes just google the word snowflake and you can get lots of ideas. I found an out of print book called Zoo Flakes ABC by Will Howell. It shows how to make animals snowflakes – cool book. The point being there are a zillion ways to make a snowflake. By the way there are more than a zillion real snowflake shapes.
Snowflakes can be flat or 3D. They generally have 6 sides but no two are ever alike. God put a lot of effort into making something so tiny and intricate. We can’t even see the details with just our eyes. Before microscopes and cameras no one probably even knew the details of just one tiny snowflake. But God knew. He cared. He wanted to show everyone and anyone how much He cares about His creation. If he cares so much that He takes time to make every little snowflake different, just think how special we are to Him. He created every person different. Even identical twins are not exactly the same. And it’s more than just our looks. Out personalities and talents are different. God made each of us unique with a special job to do. He cares what happens to us. He sent His only Son to die for us so that we could be forgiven our sins and spend eternity with Him. Snowflakes melt, but we are His unique creation with an eternal soul. How much more special God has created you and me! We are the epitome of all His creation.
Make a few snowflakes for your windows this week. While you’re at it you might want to thank the Lord for making you special. Why not ask Him what plans He has for your unique talents. Then keep an open ear and eye to God’s direction.
Please share your window of snowflakes with us.
