The silent snowflakes fall
All other sounds fade to nothing
I no longer really hear the iPad games dinging and beeping or the whining children or the cats romping like miniature horses across the living room
As I listen
I hear You, Lord
I hear Your whisper to me in Nature
I see You in the majesty of the pure white snowfall
It covers everything
Just like Your blood covers my sins
Washes everything clean
Good as new
I think You for the cleansing
I will answer You
As I put everything else aside today
To capture memories
To go sledding with my precious children.
It is no longer quiet
As we bundle up
In mittens, boots, coats, hats, snowpants
A sea of pink (and red for Alex) against the whiteness
Brace against the chill air
and the feathery snowcone pillows that fall on our hair and faces
