Forgive us Western Washingtonians...we've got snow on the brain. It is melting today but we have had a lot of it. I have not left my house for days, just like everyone else around here. Maybe that's why I'm comparing everything to... snow.
Snow is intriguing and fascinating. It is mesmerizing when it comes down in all its forms. Sometimes it falls in big flakes swirlingly floating to the ground. Sometimes it resembles a fine mist. It can even come down in mini snowballs that look hail but are a type of snow.
Gathered snow looks like a big white, beautiful blanket. Lots of snow looks great but the individual snowflake is truly amazing. We have all heard it before...each one is unique! All snowflakes may look alike but they are orginals, every one of them.
That's how we are like snow
We are just like that! We are each unique. One-of-a-kind. God made us original, according to his image. He did not make batches of Bobs or piles of Paulas. He made individuals! I love that. It's why I love coaching using StrengthsFinder and Myers-Briggs. Every person is so interesting! And, every person is one tiny aspect of God's entire Person. Just like the snowflake. Mind boggling!
Often we look at people as a group, clan or race. We see them from afar and totally miss the wonderful individuality. Just like when we only look at the blanket of snow. It's looks great but we miss the true beauty.
Let's not miss the wonder of what God created in the people around us. Let's all choose to look closer and truly see and hear each other! Pass it on...
