Ice

Ice appears in nature as hail, snow, and icicles – more massively as icebergs, glaciers, and polar ice caps. Ice floats on liquid water, allowing fish and other organisms to survive the winter months rather than being frozen to the bottom. Ice is a factor driving the great ocean conveyor which transports heat and nutrients around the globe, as well as impacting climate.

Ice in the form of snowflakes changes shape and design as it falls from the sky, and is exposed to variations in temperature. It is nearly impossible for two snowflakes to experience identical conditions as they progress through the atmosphere – just one of several reasons the chances are statistically remote any two have ever been alike.

By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen…Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God” (Job 37: 10, 14).

Father, You filled the world with wonders for us, so that we might see Your love daily before us. Even those who do not know You by name know Your handiwork.

You give the frost of heaven birth. Breathe on us anew, Father, that our hearts may melt. Shape us to Your purposes, even as we stand in awe at Your beauty. Use us to Your ends, Father, that the Good News of Salvation may be spread throughout all regions and climes.

Amen
