Spreading Snowflakes

I am amused once again as I read Fr. Tom Washburn's blog.
He definitely has a sense of humor and his blog is not only filled with wisdom,
it is also jam-packed with a lot of guidance from ABove.

I would like to share this particular excerpt from his blog. It's a story actually.

"A squirrel once asked a wise owl what the weight of a single snowflake was. “Nothing more than nothing,” the owl answered. The squirrel then told the owl about a time when he was resting on a branch of a tree, counting each snowflake that came to rest until he reached the number 3,471,952. Then with the settling of the very next flake -- crack. The branch suddenly snapped, tumbling the squirrel and the snow to the ground. “That was surely a whole lot of nothing,” said the squirrel."

A whole lot of nothing..
Do you get the idea?

You may think you're just a drop of ocean in the world..
You may ask yourself what difference can you make in the world..
You may think you amount to nothing..

You're WRONG

A drop of ocean makes all the difference..
Imagine if each drop ceased to exist, the entire ocean would be gone..

So like the snowflake, the efforts you put in spreading light and love in the world, even if it is as small as a smile or  handshake to a lonely person, you can make a difference. The whole lot of light snowflakes that you are spreading can add up to a mountain of snowflakes that will eventually break the branches and chains of evil.

So, do not be afraid.

Go out there my dear snowflakes and my ocean counterparts; continue in doing the good work.

Invite the Holy Spirit to guide you in spreading that snowflakes of yours.

Here's an excerpt of a song that is both simple and powerful. It shook my snowflakes. I want to share it with you. Sing it and pray it.

Welcome Holy Spirit
Be here in Your Presence
Fill me with Your Power
Live inside of Me

May the Peace of the Lord be with you. Shalom. :)
