Snowflakes

Yes,I want to share about snowflakes.Some,like me, love them, others do not like them at all,but bear with me and see how you will look at snowflakes after this.

For those who just don't like winter or snow, here is a lovely Purple Coneflower just for you to enjoy.

The following words were not penned by me, but were shared by a good friend of mine, at our Ladies Christmas Social.These words were written by Holly Gerth

The Meaning of the Snowflake


Every new snowflake comes to the 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 He 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 anew and a reminder of His love for you.

I challenge you to find the beauty in the snow this winter.

The purple coneflower picture is lovely! And I loved the thoughts about the snowflake, so beautifully true, and your pictures are gorgeous as well. I do love the snow, it really does make the world just beautiful! I think winter is my favorite season to photograph as well. Blessings to you dear friend :)

they are beautiful, both words and photos. I love snow and still remember the first time we saw it when I was 10 years old. we lived in show country for five years. the most beautiful sight was early morning when we woke up to new fallen snow and the world was quiet and no one had disturbed the snow. mother would scoop a bowl of it off the top of the car and make snow ice cream. even for breakfast

I really enjoyed your picture of the cornflower, and, to be honest, your snowflake photos are beautiful as well. I really like the message you included with your photos.

I'm more of a coneflower girl than a snowflake girl, but the words by Holly Gerth are lovely and true. I will try to remember them when the snow begins flying this winter.

Snow was always just a normal part of winter life until I met the RG. Now its been a blessed event every year for 45 years. He loves winter and has taught me to look for the beauty.
Your friend's The Meaning of a Snowflake is wonderful.

Oh I like winter alright, it's the icy conditions and getting stuck, etc. while driving - that's the part I don't like about winter. Your quote: "Christ sees the details of us all, and just as two are never the same He knows and calls us each by name." I loved that.

Pretty pictures, but I am one of those that enjoyed the coneflower most.
