Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

The Snow of Legends

This afternoon while we were out driving, snow began to fall, swirling, blowing and softly landing onto our car. Walking to and from the car, we all were amazed at the big, beautiful snow flakes. As they landed in our hair and on our sleeves, we gaped at the visible detail of each flake. The six points were sharp and clear, contrasting against the color of our coats.

Driving off to our next stop, Toby told me from the backseat, "Mom, I just thought the six points in snowflakes were a legend."

(Above image is a photomicrograph of a snowflake, taken by William Bentley in 1890. Bentley's photos of snowflakes proved that each snowflake is a uniquely formed snow crystal. The image is from Wikipedia, but belongs to the Smithsonian Collection.)
