Winter Snow

The chemotherapy is really wiping Justin out. He slept most of the day, but he’s up now and out of bed sitting on the couch. He still looks tired and sad.

We are planning to play Monopoly Empire and watch the snow come down from our big hospital room windows. Hopefully that will cheer him up!

Thinking about watching the upcoming snow reminds me of these song lyrics. Jesus could have come to earth any way He desired. He chose to come as a vulnerable baby, born in a lone stable on a quiet night. The way He came is so reflective of His character. Soft and gentle. Pure and white. Able to take on countless forms according to His infinite wisdom.

“Winter Snow”

Could’ve come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could’ve come like a forest fire
With the power of Heaven in Your flame

But You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

You could’ve swept in like a tidal wave
Or an ocean to ravish our hearts
You could have come through like a roaring flood
To wipe away the things we’ve scarred

But You came like a winter snow, yes, You did
You were quiet, You were soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Ooh no, Your voice wasn’t in a bush burning
No, Your voice wasn’t in a rushing wind
It was still, it was small, it was hidden

Oh, You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Falling, oh yeah, to the earth below
You came falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

I’ve heard this winter snow will be accompanied by strong winds. Grace be with you in the storm.
