“Falling Snowflakes”


I love snowflakes.  The bigger the better.  There is nothing else in nature so pure.  Those beautiful white frozen crystals gently falling in the cool, crisp air of Winter.  Everything seems to stop as snow falls.  The silence is deafening.  If you listen closely, you can hear each snowflake reach the ground.  

It is magical to take a walk while it’s snowing.  Letting the snowflakes hit your face, kissing your cheek and eyelashes, and dancing across your bare skin.  Don’t let the cold scare you away.  Embrace its freshness and take a deep breath.  

Remember how snow made you feel as a child.  The excitement when it first fell.  The anticipation and wondering if there would be school tomorrow, and if you could make a snowman before it was all gone?

How about taking a drive when it’s snowing?  Moving forward as the snowflakes hit your windshield faster than your wipers will erase them.  What a beautiful way to travel down an empty street.  

God meant for snow to be more than the simple Science of frozen precipitation in cold weather.  Oh, so much more!  Do your grown-up self a favor and take a Snow Day!
