small but beautiful

Snow in the South is such a rare occasion. For a day it snowed, and the next day there was barely any trace of it. We live a brief existence. A life that is so small in comparison to the Creator. A life so transient that our existence may not be remembered on this earth. I’m not trying to be depressing, but just trying to see things as a big picture. Why would such a holy God ever want to be with us? The fact that He cares about our every little emotion, every tear, every joy, and every moment is amazing to me. His is the Creator of the universe and He still will delight in us. We can make God smile. He finds joy in His creation because it is “very good.” He looks at us in love and thinks that we are beautiful. 

"The earth shall soon dissolve like snow

The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
My chains are gone

I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace"
