Hoar Frost is white and forms only on cold, clear nights. It displays feathery, hairy spectacular formations.
Rime Frost may be mistaken for Hoar Frost, but it is smooth, icy and hard.
Fern Frost is delicate and lacy and generally forms on single thickness window panes. Our houses are so well insulated that this seldom happens.
No matter the frost, it covers something we used to see clearly. If it is over our hearts, it separates us from God. Thankfully, when the sun shines on frost, it melts.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-28, NIV)
(We’ll talk about snow another day because snowflakes are God’s winter butterflies.)
Prayer- Lord may the Son shine into our hearts today and melt any frost that has built up. Amen.
