Dear Snowflake; You know who you are! You gourged yourself with the idealism of the world enlarging yourself in the process of your up and down formation ultimately being elevated to the top of a pedestal before beginning your necessary fall. Each and every snowflake is uniquely created pure and white as the snow. Gracefully you float on the wind bringing beauty and sparkle to all to who are able to see and behold. In the excitement of your creation you became so filled with your beauty the purpose of your creation, your true destination is not your problem.
Oh yea, an encounter with the reality of the world below with the real possibility of being collectively gathered with your friend snowflakes into a frozen ice prison or a more rapid reality encounter with an enemy of the human kind. The most feared end – the warm of the human touch which can assure instant death for a snowflake and the rapid transformation into the source of your beginning.
The formation of all life –> water –> the breath of God passing over the well spring of new life for every creature. Water that can quench the greatest thirst of one dying in the desert of life or of another in need of being washed clean from the grime and dirt the forsaken collect on life’s journey as they pass through the valley of darkness anxiously looking for some source of light and the possibility of new life. Oh dearest snowflake, never ever become discouraged for without your beginning the ultimate hope of the redemption of lost souls is not possible.
A father who loves his children knows that from time to time he must disciple his children. A child knows discipline is love. It takes real wisdom and courage to be a father. He knows he will upset the apple cart and possibly create a significant emotional event. But a wise father knows there are no short cuts if he wants his children to grow up to be able to use fully their god given talents and a critical thinking capacity.
In our modern world we have many old and young children who are being described as snow flakes. They are each uniquely beautiful and they even sparkle like a stars. Yet a wise father knows they are trapped and have greater potential yet. For they are created of a special kind of fluid with the potential to create new life. He knows tough they are beautiful as a snowflake they could remain remain frozen,inflexible and incapable of creating new life outside themselves. Snowflakes are locked into a selfie state and must die before they can create new life!
A wise father knows he must create a kind of fire that will melt a snowflake thereby restoring it to it’s natural fluid state. Water the wellspring of new life when the breath of God passes over. A father who loves his children knows the action required may necessarily create a significant emotional event for the snowflake. After all he must find a way to generate the necessary internal heat and then stand back having faith the God who created humanity works wonders in the midst of a fire.
