Slim Chance of Snow

As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.” — Genesis 8:22, NLT

We awoke to a weather change,

that full kind of sky, full of light,

full of expectation, full of what 

might fall, and we baked some

gingerbread scones, brewed

another round of coffee, nestled

into our candle-lit cozy, and waited 

on a slim chance of snow.

These closed-in days as we endure

this social-separation, even 

in moments of grief and echos

of continued isolation, we find

our normal in the routine of home,

and even in the chores of laundry,

cooking, cleaning, we find blessing

in the rhythm of life, we find beauty

in the season, we wait, hopeful,

ready for winter’s slow unfolding.
