The weight of a snowflake

We live in the SE part of Alaska. Often we do not have too bad of winters here, often it may snow a few times during the winter, then the snow melts after a few days or is washed away by rain and warmer temps. That’s a normal winter for us. Well the other day at our house we received over two feet of snow over night, for us, that was a lot. Then I started to think about snow. I’m sure if one did research I’m sure that someone somewhere figured out the weight of a single snowflake. The actual value really isn’t that important for what I feel I need to share today with you. I have seen trees that have had their branches broken off because of the weight of the snow accumulation upon them. I have heard of roofs caving in due to the excess weight of the snow accumulation. Heavy snow falls have caused major accidents and has caused many deaths as well. As I was wondering about a single snow flake,

God spoke to my spirit and shared that just as damaged can be cause by the accumulation of snow, we can harm ourselves as we allow the cares of this world to bring us down, to over tax our lives. Stresses, worries, finances, health concerns, aging parents, family, jobs, car troubles all add to our well being. Little by little they accumulate just like single snowflakes do, they can burden us down until we feel that we have no way out, a place of no escape. DON’T Listen to these LIES, you are of value, as each person is. Talk with someone, a friend, a pastor, a parent, a teacher, a coworker, a family member. Don’t allow the weight of the “snow” in your life to break you,or to pile up and cause you a major avalanche in your well being.

Churches

During some of our travels, I have photographed some various churches. Church buildings are a lot like people, there are big ones and small ones, plain ones and overly decorated ones. Some are empty on the inside, others are full of life. Some are hard to find, others a person can’t miss.

Churches are made by man but can have a presence of God. People are created by God and can display HIs presence. If you are empty on  the inside as some of these churches were, stop by a church and talk with someone. Life is too short to have a void on the inside but look good on the outside.
