What is the Meaning of the Snowflake?

With the huge snowstorm which ravaged the East Coast this past weekend, there were literally millions and perhaps billions of snowflakes that fell.  I recently came across a poem by Holley Gerth on a DaySpring Christmas card which relates Holley’s “Meaning of the Snowflake”.  I found it very moving and wanted to share it with others.  Kennebunkport received about 4 inches of snow from the storm, an unusually small amount for Southern Maine.  However, the town looks like a Currier & Ives Christmas scene and guests at the Captain Lord Mansion will definitely have a white Christmas!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield


The Meaning of The Snowflake:

Every new snowflake comes to earth as a picture of our Savior’s birth, because they are sent from up above and remind us of God’s care and love.

Each one is so intricate and small because Christs sees the details of us all, and just as two are never the same, the Lord knows and calls each by name.

Snowflakes gently cover the world in white and hide what’s unlovely from our sight, showing us how He covers our sin and gives us His grace when we come to Him.

So may every snowflake bring Christ to mind and in every bit of white may you find a reason to celebrate anew and a reminder of His love for you.
