Snowflake Beauty

While sitting in my car at a red light during yet another Minnesota snowfall, I began noticing how large the flakes were on my windshield. They were so large, that I was able to see how each one had its own unique and individual design. Granted I remember being taught in grade school when it was time to cut out paper snowflakes “no two snowflakes are ever alike.” But it really is true, and I found it to be very inspiring. How could something that is so small, that it isn’t even really noticed unless it’s piled on top of millions of other snowflakes, be so beautiful? Nature truly is God’s canvas. It was uplifting to spend a few minutes and take a step back amongst all of the bluster and blow of winter and appreciate the simple beauty of the snowflake.

Of course once I got home I had to go online and do a little snowflake research. There are people who dedicate their lives to snowflakes. How amazing is that? Below is an interesting website that I found.

And you can go here if you want to make a snowflake of your own.
