SO snow-beautiful outside today!
This poem is part heart and part rhyme-and so-challenge😊

So sorry for the consequence that repentance cannot defeat 
So, glory in the confidence through hope that Christ has made complete 
So much that we can never change but grace remains the same throughout 
So, touch the tarmac of rent chains with joy and not shackles of doubt 

So soon the seasons come to pass, these days of grass so swift indeed 
So, tune the reason to rejoice to He who satisfies our need 
So, we do not despair but bear life’s care with kind humility 
So be of good and faithful cheer, God never forsakes you and me 

So, make the most of what becomes the story-sums of yesterday 
So, take the time to be in tune with what will soon be borne away 
So surely on the pearly tides of morn to night, time ebbs and flows 
So purely from the hands of God to surly slights and burly blows 

So near we are to where we will not ever pass this way again 
So, fear the Lord with all thine heart and trust Him in life’s sun and rain 
So, when we leave behind the sheaves that others must take up to tend 
So, then the only thing love grieves is the departure of a friend 

So thankful for the mercies that always exceed our foes and woes
So, bank upon the promises that no enemy overthrows
So do not fear or worry, but be well-versed in God's steadfast Word
So through the highs and lows of life our Focus will be undeterred

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. 
Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
1 John 4:11
