Snow-mercy





Soft as a feather-down duvet
Spread over earth’s stricken slope
Snow-mercy ushers forgiveness
Whispered in diamond-frothed hope

Tender, where timberland huddled
Stripped of its autumnal robe
God throws a blanket of pardon
Over a sorrowing globe

Perfect, each scarred imperfection
Wrapped in a kindly embrace
Snow-mercy covers creation
In free-fall pictures of grace

The color of redemption was everywhere this morning!


"Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. Isa. 1:18

  1. ...sigh...I am so jealous! Beautiful poem--this is exactly the way I see snow! And I love the photo too. Now you just need a horse drawn sleigh!

  3. It was so gorgeous while it lasted; by noon it was all gone. We've had one other snowfall that lasted even a little longer than yesterdays.

    LOVE the imagery of a horse-drawn sleigh:)
