“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.
