Christmas cards are rolling in, or rather arriving in the mailbox; one of them that arrived today had the following poem on it. I know I've read it before, but it touched my heart today.
Hope you know how much God loves you!
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.
Praying your Christmas and new year are
Filled with God’s many blessings.
From the fullness of His grace we have all
received one blessing after another.
John 1:16 NIV
