As we were leaving, the snow was falling in big, fluffy flakes. I started to help Caden into his car seat, but stopped quickly when I noticed a perfectly formed, intricately detailed snowflake on his navy blue hat. I gasped and told Cody to come over and look. He agreed he'd never seen a snowflake that perfect.
We didn't stop at that one. As they continued to fall on our hats, gloves and coats, we marveled at how beautifully perfect each one was, how they looked like the sprinkles I put on my Christmas cookies (only prettier!), and how they didn't even look real. We even ran back into the bird store, breathlessly encouraging the sales consultant to come out and see, and when she did, she experienced just as much wonderment and awe as we did! She looked at my sweet boys and said, "Boys, did you know that no two snowflakes are alike? They're all made completely different, just like your fingerprints!"
I whipped out my iphone, hoping for just one good picture, but the camera just didn't do the snowflakes any justice. The photo above is one that I took here at home (on our still-hanging Christmas greenery), and if you look really closely, you can see the shape of a star in the lower left-hand corner. I was so sad I couldn't get a picture with more detail, because these snowflakes truly were a work of art!
How can anyone doubt the existence of God when something as tiny and beautiful and intricately woven falls from the sky? We serve an AWESOME God!
He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.' ~Job 37:6
