"Only Little Snowflakes"

Only little snowflakes, so small, so white, so soft; gently falling, falling; yet as they rest upon the dark and dreary earth, little by little they clothe all in a mantle of dazzling white, even in a robe of sparkling beauty.

May we not all learn and heed their lesson; for if we examine ourselves, we may often, yes, too often, find our lives darkened by sin, sickness, and despair; barren of good deeds and acts of kindness, and disobedient to the good, endearing, and true.

Then it is that even as the snowflakes accomplish with ease the task of robing all in white, so we, if we pattern our thoughts after purity and Love, and show forth that Mind which was also in Christ Jesus, may make to disappear the unideal, unworthy, and unreal of human manifestation and experience, and so make our lives an expression of grace and beauty.
