He Cares about the Small Stuff

We recently had a threat of ice in our area as a winter storm passed through. They even called for a little snow. Well, neither happened. I am thankful the ice didn’t make an appearance, because we’ve lived through one horrible ice storm and that was plenty! We were hoping to see at least some icicles or a snow flurry or two! Snow is very uncommon in our neck of the woods. The meteorologists often tell us that there is a chance for snow, but a warm front usually comes up from the south and intercepts it with a blast of warm air!

While we didn’t get snow or ice, we did get something. Something beautiful! We got a good, hard frost! The Lord laced our beautiful pine trees with frilly, fancy frost! (Sorry for all of the alliteration…I couldn’t resist! 😉 I quickly grabbed my camera and headed out to capture the memory!

The view from my dining room windows. When I opened my blinds, I gasped! It was so beautiful!

The railing of our deck is laced with beautiful crystals! Isn’t God amazing? He is so meticulous!

A beautiful pine tree hovering over our deck. I just love it!

As I see the detail in each little ice crystal, I’m reminded that the Lord cares about details, the “small stuff”. If he takes the time to see that each ice crystal is intricately formed and diverse, then He certainly cares about the details of my little life.

I appreciate this gentle reminder from my Heavenly Father. He reminded me that even during this time of “construction” in my life, I can trust Him with the end result. He works in His own timing, using His own methods, but the final result is always beautiful!
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14

  1. This morning as I let my puppy out I too was admiring the beauty of the crystals in the snow. The colors were beautiful and it made me think about how good God is to just show us a glimpse of His glory. Thank you for sharing your pictures and thoughts.
