Snow in the Season of New

It is cold outside. The wind bites my face. The sky is gray.

We have Snow. This is the Season of New.  Spring is the Season of New.

Spring and the Season of New

Job 37:6-7 (NLT)

He directs the snow to fall on the earth
and tells the rain to pour down.
 Then everyone stops working
so they can watch his power.

This is a new day. Warmed by the sun. It brightens the gray.

Buds break free. A drop of rain has a life of its own. This is the season of new.

Snow in the Season of New

Deuteronomy 32:1-2 (NLT)

Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! Hear, O earth, the words that I say!Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech settle like dew.Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.

The ground nurtures the seed. The roots grow deep. We wait for the harvest.

The tares will be tossed. There will be grain. This is the season of new.

Snow in the Season of New

John 4:35b (NLT)

But I tell you, look around you, and see how the fields are ripe for harvesting.

We honor you, oh God. You are the giver. You are the life.

The snow with its care. Our barns will be filled. God brings the season of new.

Snow in the Season of New

Proverbs 3:9-10

Honor the Lord with your wealth
and with the best part of everything you produce.
Then he will fill your barns with grain

The snow covers the gray. A song bird sings. My soul is renewed.

My Savior redeems. He rescues me to live. Welcoming the season of new.

Season of New


A poem to remember December 12, 2012

12 balls of yarn tucked neatly in a basket

12 knitted mittens for precious little hands

12 little hands lifted up toward heaven

12 songs of praise shining brightly as the stars

12 young smiles giving aged hearts laughter

12 Christmas carols of joy and jubilee
