Flakes of Snow that Praise the Lord

Snowflakes as you’ve never seen them before.

These snowflake photos were taken by Kenneth Libbrecht of CalTech, using a specially-designed snowflake photomicroscope.   They show real snow crystals that fell to earth in northern Ontario, Alaska, Vermont, the Michigan Upper Peninsula, and the Sierra Nevada mountains of California.

Those images made me think of Psalm 148, specifically Psalm 148:7-8.   As we enter a new year, the smallest particles of God’s creation continue to praise him in their own ways–fulfilling the purpose for which they were designed every single day.   May we, as his image-bearers, learn and apply that lesson in the coming year.

To God be the praise and glory in 2009.   His name alone is exalted.
