Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

The Snowflake

The Meaning of the Snowflake
By Holley Gerth

Every new snowflake comes to earth
as a picture of our Saviour's birth,
because they are sent from up above
and remind us of God's care and love.

Each one is so intricate and small
because Christ sees the details of us all,
and just as two are never the same
the Lord knows and calls us each by name.

Snowflakes gently cover the world in white
and hide what's unlovely from our sight,
showing us how He covers our sin
and gives us His grace when we come to Him.

So may every snowflake bring Christ to mind
and in every bit of white may you find
a reason to celebrate a new
and a reminder of His love for you.

Job 37:6 and 7
For he saith to the snow,
Be thou on the earth;
likewise to the small rain,
and to the great rain of his strength.

He sealeth up the hand of every man;
that all men may know his work.

Psalm 51:7
Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean,
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Psalm 147:16
He giveth snow like wool:
he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord;
though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow,
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.

A very wet walk this morning.
Out walking this morning in rain pants, yellow slicker AND umbrella.
I wore my snow sneakers.
Today was a good test to see if they really are waterproofed.
They passed the test.

A blessed Sunday to you all.
Jesus loves you.

  1. Thanks for sharing Karen! Glad your snow sneakers passed the test.
    Take care.

  2. I enjoyed seeing all those verses with snow. Happy Sunday to you!

  3. Yes, it does look quite wet in your photo's!
    What a lovely selection of verses, thank you

    All the best Jan

  4. Best wishes for a wonderful Sunday and a blessed week ahead!

  5. I hope you've had a beautiful day! Hugs, Diane

  6. ...what dedication to walk in the cold rain.

  7. This looks like a very pleasant walk. I never mind walking in the rain as long as I can stay relatively dry. I love the Holly Gerth poem of snowflakes. Snow flakes can cover such ugliness just as our Savior's blood has covered ours.

  8. Maybe I'll see snow a bit differently in the future. Glad your feet stayed dry! That's not a good feeling, cold and wet.
