You were born to beauty,
destined for greatness,
but since your Ice Age,
you positively glow.
Subtle changes in your DNA
translate red into ruby,
yellow to gold.
Pressurized by pain,
flash-frozen by distress,
fired in the furnace of Fate,
orange becomes copper,
blah becomes bling!
The frost becomes you, little one –
lift up that golden head,
wipe tears from cherry cheeks.
You were born to beauty…
Frost brings out all of the season’s best colours – is there a life lesson hidden in those rainbow-gem leaves?
The intensity of natural changes is the perfect canvas through which to view our own transformation. Nicely said.
Nature seems to have so many parallels to our existence. Co-incidence? I think not….
I guess that’s why so many great luminaries have made that connection and done so with such beauty and impact.
The beauty and complexity of the world around us certainly does point to an amazing Mind behind it all. I guess it is one of many ways we can learn about and connect with our Maker – an ushering in, so to speak.
Preach it! Yay, I see that hand…yes, Lord…
🙂 Preaching to the choir, eh? 🙂
“Blah becomes bling”–that IS encouraging. Send me some frost.
You’ve had your share already – and have no idea the colours you are already glowing with – rather glitzy, to tell you the truth! 🙂
Oh, you’re SO sweet to me–just what I needed on a very cruddy blah day! No worries, I’ll “snap out of it”–get it? “Frosty twigs”
*grin* Snap, crackle, pop?? 🙂
Mmm, that cereal sounds good–but all I have is “gruel” (oatmeal). Maybe I’ll go get some frozen waffles and syrup tomorrow…(say a prayer that I’ll be out of the mood–I do NOT need that!) That reminds me, I have a recipe to send you…
Mmmm – have you been experimenting again, hmmmm?
No, this recipe I have in my fuzzy little brain actually came from a distant relative–it’s a “casserole”, but can easily be served as dessert! I’ll email it to you–it’s easy and yummy!
Oh I like the thought of a lesson in the frost! God bless you and all the beauty He reveals in you and through you!
Thank you so much! I love the lessons He lays out for us – such sweet thoughts of hope and security and kindness.
