This Days Design Of Love

I woke up this morning thinking of all the wishing in the newspapers this past week, hoping that somehow on this day out of all others, snow just might fall and make it a white Christmas.

That didn't happen, at least not yet, and I thought back to all the Christmases of my youth, when a white Christmas was a given, and what I hoped for was that it would snow again, covering up the old white on the ground with some new.

I'd wish that the air outside would be so quiet and still, and the flakes of snow be the ones that were big and soft, with designs you could almost see.

They'd fall ever so gently, landing softly on the windowsill I was looking out...and they'd make a miniature drift at the bottom of the window glass.... remembering that, I think now of how God cares so for the details.... He made each snowflake different, how much more must He care for our lives!

I think of our love when I remember these snowflakes.... each design is so different, but still they are the same, making a small drift at the bottom of our life's windowpane.

Each design is so delicate, tiny bits of crystal ice arranged just so; like God's tiny reminders that in the very smallest of things we find the greatest evidence of His love.


Just as every word of love we speak, every gesture, every act, that shows the love that's in our hearts, creates a delicate design in our day that we share, each tiny thing adds to the beauty and plays its part.

And at the end of the day we look back and we see, that the tiniest things we've given are also the biggest things we've received, all creating this days design of love that Iíve given to you, and youíve turned and given back to me.

Merry Christmas, Trish! We got 14-16 inches of snow in our area, the other day! Talk about a white Christmas! Wish I could send you some! A comment about your lovely article...I heard a preacher say that it is impossible to give ANYTHING away because it always comes back to the sender! How true, concerning love and devotion....so why should we be so afraid to lavish it on others? It always returns...great article!
