Snowflake

We are like snowflakes.DSC_0147_1601sig

Call it a snowflake, but crystal is a superior name,

nothing is common about them, like frozen miracles.

Formed ½ to 3 miles feet above the earth,

a droplet of water, a speck of dust or salt.

Unseen by any human eye till just before it reaches land.

The central crystal adds 6 crystal arms on its trip to soil.

Each crystal arm forms according to the God arranged order of the water molecule which establishes them. In perfect conditions their symmetry is breathtaking.

All crystals travel a different path to earth.

No crystal is alike-ever, in all of history, this winter and any future winter, not even one image the same.

Sturdy for the long fall to earth, delicate, intricate, elaborate, and infused with breath taking beauty.

It may be called snow, but this word is too common, too ordinary.

How are we like snowflakes?DSC_0142sig

Call us embryo, but baby is a superior term.

We began life as babies.  Miracle is the best description.

Each of us was formed unseen at conception in the womb. Unnoticed by human eye.

Growing quickly adding incomprehensible and magnificent body systems. Every part miraculous, symmetrically breathtaking.

Our development followed a God set order-our DNA.

Like a snow crystal,

there is no other human exactly like you, not one.

Every human is sturdy for a long life on earth, but delicate, elaborate and infused with breath taking beauty, like a snow crystal.

Yes, call us human.

But separate from lifeless snow crystals for we are made in the living image of God.

Snow crystals melt within the season of their formation,
The human soul is eternal.

So, God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God, he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27DSC_0149_1603sig

What does a grandfather, husband, former public school teacher and Education Specialist for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service with many life experiences in nature do with them? A naturalist with a camera-makes outside a daily destination. My confidence is that God will guide my words, and photos. We live in a magnificent world, come and look at it with me through eyes, lens and words. To God be the glory. Current Profile Photo- Prickly Ash, the name summarizes this brushy undergrowth well. It fascinates me with its thorny branches. Seeing a vine wrapped around the trunk called for a photo.
