Snow reminds me of faithfulness; of present-ness, beeeeeing in the moment, and of unfailing faithfulness. It is metaphor for goodness even when well-timed promises seem to tarry so long you frankly feel you are moving at the speed of a glacier. (Science says that on average that’s less than half a kilometer or 300 yards a year).
How beautiful are the star shapes of a snowflake not? Its glossy glistening petals. And woah, the star shape inside a blueberry …. HAVE you seeeeen it?
Baffles the mind!!
Snowflakes and blueberry-stars are like people -amazingly created, multifaceted, every curve and bend with a purpose, dignity and plan. AND just like blueberries make your lips blue, each one tells their own story. We all are.
Breathing in, breathing out. Faaaaaaaaaaaaar beyond precious.
