It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 12, Page 14, Book 15

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 

Long ago...
a glittering star
led the way to a Holy Child,
And today it is said
that snowflakes
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.

I like the legend of the snowflake. I hadn't thought of doing snowflakes in other colors of paper; that could be fun to do in July and decorate the house with summer snowflakes of different colors :) We are having snow today with icy roads; hubby said the commute to work was a gruesome one, he saw at least one accident right in front of him. I'm thankful he made it to work safely!
