IN AWE OF MY CREATOR

 

Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.

(John 1:3)

             **********************************************************************

Looking outside my window at the accumulating snow falling from the sky and the formed icicles decorating my deck rails like tinsel, my mind wanders back to a time when I looked forward to these days. Living behind the high school, there were always mountains of snow pushed up at the ends of the parking lot during the winter months. When school was closed, my brother and I, along with the neighborhood kids, loved playing in the winter wonderland of Michigan. Heavily bundled by our moms to endure the cold, we trudged off to the mountains to play out our imaginative stories of adventure.

Do my weathered eyes view this scene the same today? I am not one who engages outside in winter freely now due to health concerns. However, the beauty of God’s changing seasons always amazes me. In Michigan, it is never static, always changing, seasons within seasons intermingling, intertwining. God is an artist, Creator of snowflakes differing in form and shape; Creator of you and me differing in form and shape; Creator of individualized and unique patterns, differing in form and shape—all bearing the same label: Made by God.

Imaginative stories of adventure on mountains of snow are in my memory. The present view from my window reveals to me the beautiful reality of creation. With absolute awe of my God who can and does continue to amaze me, I am blessed to behold the falling snow draping the trees, resplendent; the forming icicles, glistening wet; the unadulterated blanket on the ground– pure and untouched beauty just for you and me.

“Worthy are You, our Lord and God,
    to receive glory and honor and power,
for You created all things,
    and by Your will they existed and were created.

(Revelation 4:11)
