God's Amazing Snow Crystals


Much of America is blanketed with a lot of snow right now. So when I came across this information, I thought how wonderful to learn more about the perfection and beauty of God's creation -
SNOW

Please take a few minutes and check out these websites.

Fun post. I enjoyed your video, too. It is so amazing that this past week 49 out of 50 states had snowfall. Enjoy your wintery weekend, but stay safe!

I can't help myself....I love the snow!

I am thrilled that I visited you this morning. I too love snow and I have always been fascinated by snowflakes. I have never heard of the "Snowflake Man" and the video was great. We can always learn something new everyday. I also love your photo from your previous post. I can see you are an accomplished photographer. How did you do that? Beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Jeanne

I loved this! Thank you! I was given a snowflake book, and didn't realize there was a website.

Hi Jocelyn,

I've never heard of The Snowflake man. Thank you so much for sharing this tribute to his life. I got a sense of his passion and love for the subject of snow.

I grew up in Chicago and during this time of year, there was always plenty of snow and cold air coming in from Lake Michigan. I must admit, there are times when I miss that blanket of white.

Blessings and peace.

Everything God has created just amazes me! Snowflakes are so beautiful...no two the same. Kind of like people, unique and one-of-a-kind. His creativity is limitless!

Hi Jocelyn!
Oh, I am a "snowbird". I love seeing the beauty of the gentle clean snow coming down! It still makes me feel like a little kid.

Charlotte said...

How interesting. Thank you for this information and beautiful photos of snowflakes. I have always loved snow. Maybe it's because most of my life I lived where it never snowed. LOL Anyway, The video was most interesting. That man really was ahead of his time. I remember my Mom making snow ice cream when I was a little girl. It really impressed me. Thank you for the memory.
Blessings,
Charlotte

What a great post and the video of the Snowflake man was very interesting and informative. The gist of the video was the meat of the whole thing. Beauty, uniqueness, and earthly things are transient and fleeting. Only Christ and that which lives in Him will be eternal. God bless, Dr. Bobbi

Fascinating! While taking photos last week, I stood behind my grandchild who was wearing a dark sweater. Snow started as we hurried to take photos before running into the warm house. Freezing for the photo I happened to look down and realized that the snow landing on her sweater was in the shape of exquisite crystals like these. It was the first time I'd ever seen that and I am still thrilled by it. So this was doubly interesting to me. Thank you! :)

That was really interesting and just like snowflakes none of us are exactly alike. Isn't that wonderful.
