A winter snowscape awaited me
As one day I gazed out to see
The slender trees mostly bare of their leafy crowns
Motionless as statues in the morning dawn.
Pale sky and ground white with snow
Greeted me outside my window.
A damp chill hung in the wintry air
While inside the temps remained warm and fair.
Such as still and quiet scene
Covered by a soft blanket of gentle peace.
It is the Lord’s loving and nurturing way
Silently reminding that everything will be okay.
Chilled wintry day touched
By God’s peace and grace; I then
Know all is okay.
