Today a gentle snow falls. Large clusters of flakes tumble earthward, holding hands and dancing to a muted tune only they can hear. It must be warmer today. I put on my coat and head down the snow-cloaked road.


It’s so quiet my crunchy footsteps resound irreverently across the wintry expanse. When I reach the hilltop, I stop. A profound stillness envelops me. I strain to hear something … anything. There’s nothing—not the rustle of crisp, brown oak leaves, not the cheerful call of the chickadees, not a whisper from the wind. My whole world pays silent homage to God.

Quiet fills the room where I sit and work and pray.

The world stands still, but I’m at a loss for what to say.

I know many hurt, God; they need someone like You.

Help them to hold on to what is good, lovely, and true.

 

I think about Your heart, Your love, Your plan, Your ways.

How You’re always with us in good and not so good days.

You see what we can’t—victory springing to life.

The peace that arrives when we let go of inner strife.

"And the LORD, He is the one who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you;
Do not fear nor be dismayed."
Deuteronomy 31:8 NKJV

 

On this cold winter’s evening,

I think about this year’s plight.

Days it was hard just being,

Trying to have enough might.

 

Now the journey continues,

New joys but also trials.

Challenges, difficult news.

What will be in future miles?
