The beauty of the snow often covers up the brown of the winter here in NW Pennsylvania. We have had plenty of snow and ice this year, but nothing compared to the feet of snow that Buffalo and now the New England states are facing. Snow is incredible because each snowflake that falls is unique. No other snowflake in the world will be designed exactly the same way. As I am looking out my window I see hundreds of new flakes falling to the ground, increasing the depth of the snow outside. Even with over a foot of snow on the ground right now, not a single snowflake is the same. Remarkable!
Within these posts are stories of strength, courage, and fortitude. But there are also plenty of posts from individuals who seem hopeless and hurt. Often times this pain is derived from the sole reason that they are perceived as not "normal". My heart breaks when I read these threads of individuals who are seeking strength when no one around them is offering them any.
Just like each snowflake is unique, each of us are unique. There is no "normal" snowflake, they are all different. They are all made just the way they were supposed to be. Just like people, their really isn't a "normal" because we are all created unique and for a purpose. God created me just the way that I am and regardless of what others may say, I am special and loved by my Creator.
We see the beauty in the individuality of the snowflakes . . . God sees the beauty in the individuality of each one of us.
