Do you think if I keep calling it "white stuff" and not, you know, the real name...*snow*...that it will stay away?
BUT, I can dream can't I?
Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching snowflakes as the drift down from above. I actually find it very relaxing and peaceful.
It leads me to think about people. We are all created:
We don't all look the same, act the same, live the same, enjoy the same things. Imagine how boring life would be if EVERYONE had blonde hair and blue eyes, and was the same height and liked the same thing!
(I have nothing against blue eyes and blonde hair by the way. I think blue eyes are very pretty...just making a point here.:))
Just as God created the snowflakes different, He created us different. I don't know about you, but I'm glad He did.
I believe God has a special purpose for everyone. It's up to us to search for and find it. To turn from the world and seek Him in everything we do. It's up to us to see our own God given beauty and talents and seek Him to direct our paths. To embrace the life God has so generously given us.
~ Are you going to your light sparkle and shine so that the world can see Jesus?
~ Are you going to see your true beauty?
~ Are going to stop comparing yourself to others? (I'm pretty sure the snowflakes don't compare themselves)
~ Are you going to love yourself?
~ And most importantly, are you going to love and live for God and accept Jesus as your Savior (if you haven't already)?
If you don't know the Lord as your personal Savior but you want too, here's a prayer and scripture for you to pray. Please know that you don't have to say this prayer word for word. God wants to hear it from your heart. This is just a sample you can go by.
Dear God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived. Please forgive me Lord and cleanse me.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Word, in Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
I confess Jesus is Lord. With my heart, I believe that You God raised Jesus from the dead and I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
Romans 10:9-10. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
If you just said this prayer and meant it with all your heart then you have been born again! Welcome to God's family! So, now what? Well, it's important to get a Bible, read it, study it, learn it. You should also find a good bible-based church. :)
Wow, who knew you could learn something about others and yourself from a snowflake?
Oh, wait...I know who! :)
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
- According to Guinness World Records, the largest snowflakes on record were 15 inches in diameter and 8 inches thick. They fell on Fort Keogh, in eastern Montana on 28 January 1887.
