Yesterday my kids were quite excited to finally see it snowing again. I can often forget the beauty of a snowflake and focus on the cold frigid temperatures that seem to follow, but the excitement in my children’s eyes brings back the awe and the wonder in me and soon we’re all running outside as these beautiful snowflakes fall upon us, each one so unique. We examine them before they melt on our mittens and taste them as they land on our tongues.

So, for a fun advent activity, we spent a beautiful evening together as family creating paper snowflakes. It seems like such a simple activity but it was so much fun and soon after we began, it looked as if it was snowing inside as well as outside.  The carpet was full of little bits and pieces of paper cut outs, we shared some treats and hot chocolate then someone read “The snowflake poem” by Holly Gerth. Each year we have someone different read this poem and this year I’d like to read it to you.

Every new snowflake comes to earth as a picture of our Saviours 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 see 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.

I hope that little poem brought a smile to your face and warmed your heart and that you will marvel this winter season and give thanks as our creator God showers his beauty in the form of snow flakes upon you and upon me.
