This post is just for you, in case you need a little down time during your weekend while you celebrate Christ's birth. Sit back with your tea (or coffee), and enjoy the warmth of my home for the next few minutes...
I love snow. And I love snowflakes. They mirror the amazing complexity of creativity of the Lord. No two are alike! Imagine--each time it snows, millions of flakes fall. I cannot grasp the concept that the Lord crafted each one. Then I think--how much more His creativity with us, and with me!!
Though I do love snow and snowflakes, I tend to always be cold all winter. Sometimes, it's good to bring the outdoors inside, and the Christmas season is my time to do that: a tree, boughs on the fireplace mantel... Lovely!
And snowflakes! In the early years of my marriage, I purchased a set of plastic glitter snowflakes for our family Christmas tree. Over the years, other snowflakes have been added to the mix. Eventually, it became official--each year, I purchase one or two unique snowflake ornaments for our tree. These are some of my many snowflakes.
Snowflake on my mantel spruce--crafted by my mom
I love blue, too--in my opinion, the glitter looks like snowflakes!
One of my original snowflakes--plastic can be pretty!
New this year--wooden snowflake with pom-pom center
Another new snowflake! (a gift from my sweet flute student)

A stocking decorated with snowflakes!
I also collect glass icicles, though I have just a small handful. Eventually, our tree will be covered with icicles and snowflakes, and I will enjoy them from my cozy spot on the couch. :)
