People who don't live here in Vermont are often thankful they do not have to experience winter like we do here. But they just don't understand what they are missing out on. The beauty of a snow-covered green mountains and evergreen trees with white snow caps. The landscape is covered for winter in a soft white blanket of snow. Yes there are down falls to living in Vermont. Shorter days longer night, frozen pipes and noses. But for me the true Vermonter I love it! The first snow is always the best.

I love the way the snow glitters in the light. It reminds me of Diamonds that reflect the sunlight into rainbows that dance in the air. It is beyond me to understand how anyone could live in a place like this during winter and not believe in God the creator of all things. Each sparkling snowflake is truly unique drifting, felling, gently landing to earth to remind us of Gods love for us. Just as each snowflake was designed with care and thought. Coming in a variety of sizes and shapes not one alike so are we. ?
If God cares enough about the design of millions and millions of snowflakes that melt in your hand within seconds how much more does he care for me? Just as every snowflake is unique, every person is unique because God created them in his image. God has a plan for your life something he designed you for. He loves you so much that before you were formed in your mothers womb he had great plans for set in stone. Snowflakes are good for more than just snowshoeing and making snow­men and snowball fights. They have an important job to do. In the winter, snow acts like a blanket which protects the roots of plants and crops that will come up in the spring.Vermonters hate winters without snow. Just like God has a purpose for each snowflake that falls so does he for you. Do you know what He wants for you?

Beautiful pictures. I love the one of the road. Reminds me of the verse, though our sins be as scarlet, they will be as white as snow.
