Carolyn's Daily Posts: 2011

December 21, 2011




with Monte W. Holland

 Earth has hosted more than seven billion persons…

Earth has been decorated by an uncountable number of snowflakes…

Only God could create each uniquely.

Each year since 1972 I our family has substituted a handcrafted ornament for a Christmas card. This year, 2011, I chose a snowflake cutout for a theme (it truly is truth that all we need to know we learn in kindergarten…so true, I thought, as I cut out paper folded snowflakes).


     The snowflake is noted for its uniqueness. Each of us is made in the image of God, but are still quite unique. As startling as the similarities of appearance of Darlene to her newly discovered family members, these folks are distinctly different. You all know how different Carolyn and I are. And we are enriched by differences. When it comes to hockey, don’t expect to converse with Carolyn. I have to talk to my friend Lois. When it comes to writing, Carolyn can count on conversing with a number of friends. And yet in spite of our differences we never lose sight of the fact that we are created in God’s image and called to live responsible lives. If we celebrate Christmas, we acknowledge that Jesus came in the flesh and made all the difference in the world for us and all of humanity.

May you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
