It looks like we’re in for a big winter storm. It’s been a while since we’ve seen one. Like a blanket of pure white, it will cover the brown grass and spread a glimmer like a million diamonds. We’re anxious for that perfect White Christmas. We need a little shine to our dreary existence these days. We have just the right scenario for the perfect storm. The year is coming to an end. We feel we’ve been cheated out of our most favorite holiday gatherings, yet snow is like whitewashing everything. With it comes beauty, perfection, purity, hope. May the promise of the Savior of the world, give you the peace you need this year and always.
It seems that just a day ago, small buds of green appeared,
The signs of spring were everywhere, then quickly disappeared,
A winter storm with lots of snow comes roaring into town,
The cloak of white is beautiful, but it’s still upside down.
When we are struggling in our sin, when death is at our door,
We hope to go with hearts washed clean, to where we sin no more,
The whiteness of our Father’s love, has washed away all sin,
He’s opened up the gates to heaven so we can enter in.
We will endure the storms of life, they come and go each day,
Like unexpected winter storms, they soon will melt away,
The freshness of new life returns when we can see the Son,
The perfect lamb of God was born, He lived for everyone.
He washed our every sin away and took them to the cross,
When death took hold, our sins died too, our gain came at great cost,
But death could not contain our Lord, He rose again and lives,
Though storms continue through our days, we know our God forgives.
