Hello, Snowflake! That’s you!
When the sun shines on the snow, it is beautiful! You are beautiful! Each snowflake is beautifully patterned but also unique. You too are patterned after God’s likeness, and you are unique. You are a one-of-a-kind. You are very special. There’s no one just like you. God has made you special.
Snowflakes together bring us joy as we ski, snowboard, go sledding, and make snowmen, but there are by-products of snow that we don’t embrace: slippery conditions, long hours of darkness, extreme cold, downed trees, loss of power, shoveling, plowing, snow blowing, wet feet. Why do we live in New England? What is wrong with us?
Snow reminds us of life on this earth: the beauty, the joy, and the dark side.
