On Thanksgiving Day, I woke up to a snow covered ground. My initial reaction was one of glum resignation; giving in to another season of the cold wet stuff. I'm not a huge fan of snow, but perhaps it was the thankful theme of the day that made me remember the true beauty that is snow.
The above photos are of actual snowflakes, taken by Wilson Bentley in the early 1900's. Combining art and science, Bentley saw snowflakes for what they truly are; "tiny miracles of beauty". He pioneered the theory that each snowflake is a unique design. Once a snowflake melts, that singular design, crafted with care by our Creator, is never to be seen again.
