Crystal beauty

The past two mornings we have been treated to some of the thickest frost I have ever seen. It's a stunning sight. It's one thing to look at it from the window--just white against a gray sky, sort of surreal. But when you look closely, the contrasts are striking.





To think of the minute details that our God put into his creation--the vast majority of which we can't even SEE--is mind boggling. To think of the thought and care and love and delight he put into each one of US is beyond amazing. Imagine the lengths he went to in order to secure an enduring relationship with each of us...

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

He is the ultimate Valentine.
