Let it snow

Ahh..Christmas time.  We are a family full of singers. Not that we always sing in perfect harmony with each other or even sound decent…but we all LOVE to sing! Loud and long. In the car ,(specially) in the house, in the yard,with friends, even alone. You get the picture. Not a lot of silence going on. Christmas time is even more fun. My kids love singing all the Christmas carols and even plan on dragging friends out to go caroling with them. (Watch out).  Some of the more wintery  songs mention snow.  Snow? What’s that? We live in Southern California and don’t get to see it that often. Chances are, when we do, we gather it up, pack it down, and chuck it at someone we love.  As we were wondering about this white phenomenon, I happened upon this. Snowflakes close up.
Wow! This made up wonder about nature…beauty… And our Creator- the Artist himself. Geology.com  says “A snowflake begins when a tiny dust or pollen particle comes into contact with water vapor high in Earth’s atmosphere. The water vapor coats the tiny particle and freezes into a tiny crystal of ice. This tiny crystal will be the “seed” from which a snowflake will grow.” It goes onto explain that as it falls closer to the earth, it picks up more and more frozen water vapor increasing its size while adding to its hexagonal shape. What?!? 
I have never dropped something from any distance and had it turn into something as beautifuland intricate as a snowflake. Mind blown.
Ok, so every snowflake is different? Our Creator knows the number of hairs on my head…
Luke 12:7 “Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
…and the number and names of all the stars?  Wow.
Psalm 147:4He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.”
 Our God is bigger than we can comprehend, but sees it fit to be a personal God…to love us and know us intimately. And, we are as individual as the snowflakes.

We have found that many times, admiring nature and further research into the how’s and why’s lead us to a better understanding of our God and creator. What an artist.
