The Meaning of the Snowflake...

First, let me say...from our home to yours - a very Merry Christmas.  And as we embark on a new year, I thought I'd share this poem with you that was given to me this season.  I love every... single...last... word of it. 

The Meaning of the Snowflake
Every new snowflake comes to the earth
 as a picture of our Savior'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 anew and
a reminder of HIS love for you.
To me, Christmas means HOPE.  I'm so thankful and completely humbled for the forgiveness he so graciously gives.
Merry Christmas and A Happy and Blessed New Year!
