it is snowing today...

The Snowfall Is So Silent
The snowfall is so silent,
so slow, bit by bit,
with delicacy it settles down
on the earth
and covers over the fields.
~ Miguel de Unamuno ~

The snow is falling ever so gently here on the Manitoba prairies, and I LOVE IT! As it does for many, it reminds me of a fresh start, a clean journal page, a story ready to be written. Fitting, I think, as I embark on this new blogging experience and the new opportunities I will have to connect with others about life, God and this crazy world we call home.

I do love snow. Always have. Good thing, too, because I am born and raised in Prairie-land, and like it or not, we get our fair share of snow around here. I have always been facinated by snowflakes and their artisitc beauty. (Yahoo!! I am not the only one! Check out SnowCrystals for someone who has made it their life work to study crystal formations and photography! Stunning!!)

It is surmised that each snowflake - like each person - is uniquely created, each with a dazzling beauty of its own. I look forward to exploring that wonderous creativity with you and honoring the One who made it all.....
