Dear Church,

Last week, I offered up a Christmas poem, entitled I Heard Healing in the Babe’s Cry. This week our poem, Snow Day, is written by Linda Gammon. Christmas is a time of great joy for Jesus “will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)  May your season be filled with contentment, joy, and peace. Have a blessed week and we will see you on Sunday.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Dale

 

 

Snow Day

 

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7

 

 

We wait,

like children for Christmas,

watching out the window

for the first flake

promised by the forecast

and the silent silver sky.

 

We long,

like beggars for a meal,

hungry to our bones

for forgiveness

offered by the Savior

sent to the world in winter.

 

We find,

like prisoners set free,

a new life, its fresh start

a white blanket

to cover our transgressions

so we can bear the cold.

 

By Linda Gammon
