Snow Flakes & God Moments


The other day when it started snowing I was on the way to Best Buy with my son Garren. When we left the store to get back in the truck it had really started coming down. We got in the truck, and Garren looked down at his sleeve to check out one of the flakes that had stuck to his arm. He said "This doesn't really look like a snowflake."

After a little more discussion, it turned out his only point of reference for what a snowflake looks like is the cut-out-of-paper snowflakes. Then I said, "Did you realize that there are no two snowflakes alike?" That got us to thinking -- all the snowflakes in the world, throughout the history of snowflakes, are different. How creative our God must be to come up with that many different snowflakes!

Our God truly is amazing, and to spend that much detail on something as small and insignificant as a snowflake is really pretty amazing. Think how much more He cares about you!

There is still one question I need your help with. If no two snowflakes are alike, then how do we know what a snowflake looks like?

How do you know all Snowflakes are different? Have you looked at them all. Maybe there is a pattern of 1,000,000,000,000,00 different ones and then the pattern repeats? Just kidding, good post...

I think that's one of those questions like "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?".......The world may never know...

It's easy, just figure out what everything else looks like, and whatever is left over, is a snowflake
