This blog is about the journey from here to there. Early posts have devotional poetry and prose with scripture included. Many deal with the difficulty of having people in my life who are living with cancer and have died from cancer. Now I'm focusing on going back to college in my 50's and discovering a new path to direct my art--which is art therapy. _________________________________________ All of the artwork I created unless otherwise noted. If you'd like to buy one of my paintings or contact me to say oh, give me a million dollars to help me in my artistic endeavors : See my art and purchase prints here: orginals: merchandise: __________________________________________ The scriptures are usually taken from the New Revised Standard w/ apocrypha or the New King James.

Everything We Need to Know is in a Snowflake

Rate: 3 Flag
Psalm 27


A blanket of white
a snowflake
the kaleidoscope of You.

In this tiny architecture
on the tip of my finger
I breathe and you're gone.

This fleeting magic
shown to us only if we have
our eyes wide open
and still

do we dare to see
your brilliance.

There are symbols of You
This one says "rest".
Rest in your nest
let the spring birds
sing while they gather their food
in the cold.
Chubby cheeked children
with a touch of crimson
on their lips
devour Your frozen playground,
made more scrumptious
with a respite from school.

In perfect timing
a train whistle blows;
(I can see the steam trailing
from the stack)
hearkening me to simpler times.

Why do we complicate things
with shoulds and shouldn'ts
rules for how to put another
in a box?

Everything we need to know
is in a snowflake.

There are not that many scriptures on snow, but here are a few of them...

Proverbs 25:13.Like the cold of snow in time of harvest Is a faithful messenger to those who send him, For he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Isaiah 55:8."For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the Lord. 9"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. 10."For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, 11.So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. 12."For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Daniel 7:9."I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire; 10.A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.

Yes. And the snowflake fell,
and taught me all that I needed
to know without one single word.
Sun, moon, wind, celestial bodies,
and everything follows natural orbits.

Psalm 27 - by David Wither (David)
God's Light, health, mine aid, my Life's
Defense:`Whom is there to fear? None.
Foes trip, decay, and are assayed, Ruin.
on and on.
Nature's beauty fortifies the human heart.
Scriptures in context, are wise instructions.
Well ArtJames I am finally graced with your poetic comments! Thank you! I googled David Wither and I didn't find anything, someone educate me! Nonetheless I enjoyed your comment.
Anne C. C. I waited here with panting bad breath for you response. Phew.
Beet it!
okay, ay!
I love psalters.
I found a book.
The Poet's Book of Psalms. - The Complete salter as Rendered by Twenty-Five Poets from the Sixteenth to the Twentieth Centuries. Edited by - Laurance Wieder. Oxford University Press. 1995. I love reading the Psalms. The old-time Psalter commentaries are good reads.
I will get that book for sure. I love books and and have bookcases full-I have to admit mostly picture books(painters, artists, children's) it's a sickness I think because half of them I haven't read. I just like having them around as reference.

Are you telling me that the same psalm 27 in this book has this very text with the snowflake comparison in it? That is too serendipitous for words! I knew loving snowflakes wasn't new, who doesn't love them. But bless my soul, I love it!
everything you do is perfect
Ah shucks Kathy, I'm glad you think so, but I think everything? is far from perfect...I can keep trying though!
Anne C. Cutrie. Not the snowflake, but the Light, Health, Holy, Pure, Dazzle,
the Hebrew?
The emphasis in the translation is on `Light. That's in the first part, of the Psalm.
It's fun with words.
Hebrew is real `fluid?
It's picture paint`Word.
Here is the last part of the 27th Psalm.
The Queen James Version is in the back.

and cruel words are devised (no sight of bliss),
the petitioner who reaches-out to nature is not faint,
and Nature attends to the human and is fortified with vim.
I like children books better than blogs and adults. Periods.
I think I understand why artist give up on adults. 'um Goon.
If I ever have a younger partner who has a baby. 'Ay Farmer!
I Hope, boy or girl, the baby shall be named Moses Rabinog!
I Hope, woman's nice, and Mommy is named Rocksmanoffs!
Queen James' version more
Mine is my own psalm 27 not having to do with
other psalm 27
king or otherwise.
other psalms i've written i connect
with scripture
but this i do this
i try to write
oh say how am I doing
with your word play
"our eyes wide open/and still" Exactly the way to see the magic of everything!! As lovely as a snowflake, you are, Anne!!
Anne, I love the comparison in the beginning. It is simply marvelous, simply marvelous. I enjoy this piece with your ability to THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. Something we all need to do from time to time especially in our current times.
Peace, Jali.
Jali: yes I think even artists and intellectuals who pride themselves on thinking outside the box fall in the trap of following the herd so to speak. I really think God or the universe as some like to look at it is asking us to take it up a notch. Turn in a different direction and do things differently.
