Morning Mercies


Snow settles soft on the earth, fresh grace


calling me to come

to rest

to fall, myself, into its welcome

and then to fall again, now part of its gentle blessing,

tenderly touching foot-roughened earth

with hope and peace and beauty.


“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
