Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance — each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.
December 14th- God’s snow flakes
The Legend of the Snowflake
a glittering star
led the way to a Holy Child,
And today it is said
are tiny pieces of that very star
sent to lead our hearts anew
to Jesus the Light of the World
One of the fun things to do with children this time of year is to cut out snowflakes. They say that there are no two snowflakes alike. Each one is different from the other.
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, and melting like a snowflake.
We are like God's snowflakes, each individual, each unique, each purposefully designed and carved out by it's creator.
The snowflake is the symbol of ephemeral beauty. Snowflakes can be a reminder to keep your eyes open and be on the lookout to beautiful things around us before they disappear.
A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!
Doing most anything is easier when done with others. Snowflakes can also remind us of the power we have in togetherness.
We have no snow at all on the ground right now, but officially winter has not yet begun. We usually have it starting in November and ending as late as April. I'm not complaining at all. It will come, it always does.
No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place.
