There is just something peaceful and beautiful about freshly fallen snow. It is white clean and pure. Powdery and soft. To me there is nothing better then watching the snowflakes fall. Imagining each snowflake has a story to tell, or a message to share. I feel like snowflakes are messages of love from heaven. A gift for all of us to enjoy and be healed by. All of us have someone we loved that have left this earth. There is a long process for healing, and even though you know that Families are Forever, it seems like a long time till we will be reunited again. It is almost a sacred moment when you are with a child who sees snow for the very first time. Their huge smile, giggles, and joy over playing in the snow and catching snowflakes. Everything we have been given here on earth is for a reason. It is a gift that was created from a loving Father. A gift for each of his children to enjoy. From watching it fall, to skiing, to sledding, to snow shoeing, to all the many adventures you can have with snow. I have been lucky enough to have grown up around snow my entire life. Enjoying it as a child, playing in it and doing different snow activities, and now watching my children enjoy it, I love how the snow gently surrounds the temple, and almost gives it a blanket of warmth,
For the beauty of each hour of the day and of the night, Hill and vale and tree and flower, Sun and moon and stars of light: Lord of all, to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.
For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child, friends of earth, and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild: Lord of all to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.
For each perfect gift of thine to our race so freely given, Graces human and divine, Flow'rs of earth and buds of heav'n: Lord of all to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.
