White Grace Stillness

It caught me by surprise this morning-
the while blanket sifting over branch and lawn.
Normally I have watched all forecasts
 for snow for days and see 
the approaching weather systems.
Not today.
The stunning contrast of chair,
 bench and birdbath,
with hardlines.
 And then the edges rounded
 and slipping off gently.
And the reminder that yes today-
my sins have been made-
as white as snow.
Oh- a good day indeed.

Isaiah 1:18 
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord.
 “Though your sins are like scarlet, 
I will make them as white as snow.
 Though they are red like crimson, 
I will make them as white as wool.
