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.
Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean,
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
He giveth snow like wool:
he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
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.
