Winter.....the word usually brings a smile to my face because it brings memories of snow, friends, Thanksgiving, curling up with a blanket and cocoa, and of course Christmas. But what I so frequently forget is the growth that winter brings. The cold of the winter brings insulation for the grass to reseed the ground and grow strong in the spring. It helps the trees grow strong and tall. It also reminds me of how God walks us through the cold times to grow us closer to Him. And bring in the spring a melting of hearts and a new birth.
Each snowflake that falls to the earth is completely different. There is not two alike. The amount of snowflakes that fall from the sky and knowing that there is not one alike humbles me. I barely have enough creativity for 5!! The sun beams that reflect off the pristine cut edges making the freshly fallen snow look like diamonds. The world looks brighter whether by day or by night. The sounds of the falling snow is magical and it lays like a heavy blanket. Encasing the world in a crystal beauty.
The correlation between the snowflake and our christian walk is amazing. God takes a simple raindrop and freezes it in perfect beauty transforming it. As it settles in the exact spot where God places it, it reflects the suns beauty! Can you see it now? God takes our hearts and transforms them and sends them to some place that is perfect for us and then we begin to reflect Jesus' light to the world!
Here is a post of photos of snowflakes:
