He Hurls Down His Crystals of Ice Like Crumbs

This clip is of the spectacular South American glacier, The Perito Moreno Glacier, which breaks up every four years like clock work, give or take a week. This every-four-year event has gone on for centuries – and photographers from the four corners of the earth that come to southern Argentina and literally camp out at the glacier site in order to get the actual breakup on film.

He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;
who can stand before his cold?
He sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow and the waters flow
Psalm 147:17-18

  1. "God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a downpour.' So that all men he has made may know his work, he stops every man from his labor."
    Job 37:5-7
    Leland -- keep passionately serving Him for His glory, Psalm 115:1; Acts 20:24.

    His lightening lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
    The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.
    The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.
    Psalm 97: 4-6
