Beautifully Unique 

This past week there has been a ton of snow in Boone. My entire life I have loved snow: the way it piles up, the way it sticks together, but most of all the way it falls. I have always loved sitting next to the window and watching each flake of snow flutter down from the sky. The other day, as I watched the snow fall I thought of the uniquness of every one. How each flake has their own curves, corners, edges, and thickness. Humans are the same way. God made each human being different in so many ways. “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made (designed)” Psalm 139:13-14. God designed every part of us. The freckles, the birthmark, the mole, the tooth gap, the bald spot…. are they flaws or marks of uniqueness? “God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was good” Genesis 1:31. These features are not flaws because God doesn’t make flaws. They are reminders that God put thought into the creation of each one of us. The most “attractive” people and the “ugliest” people are all beautiful in the eyes of God. Because we are all his creation, but more importantly we are his children. Whether it is people or snow, it for certain that God is a master at making simple things beautiful.
