Wonder of a Snowflake

Today it snowed...a little.
The kids had been playing outside and I heard the front door open and close.
Hannah exclaimed, "Come out here, you have got to see this...IT'S AMAZING!!"
She proceeded to show me a tiny snowflake that had landed on her hat perfectly and precisely formed.

She told me she had never noticed them before having so much detail. It was nice to hear such genuine wonder and excitement about the beauty of God's creation.

 A snowflake in it's intricate design is a perfect example of God's great love for us. Who, other than God would take such careful skill and thoughtfulness to give us such loveliness? The snowflake lasts but a moment, but it's beauty remains in our hearts a  reminder of the infinite love of our Creator.

Tiny snowflakes softly fall,
Silent, lovely, beautiful,
All the earth holds such treasures,
Love's epitome of unending measures.
Standing still downy drifting
Breathless wonder espy alighting,
Worthy though I may not be
All this nature deigned for me.
Intricate is His design,
 Art created by Love Divine.


  1. wow! I have never seen a snowflake so close up before!! That is sooo neat.

  2. Oh my! That is so awesome, it doesn't even look real.
