the leaves by the door

raked and bagged, are there no more

less sweeping inside

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

growing into thick forest

cloaked with pure white snow

the balsam trees seem to know

‘just keep pointing up’

For this is what the Lord says–he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited–he says: “I am the Lord and there is no other.”

The apples, amazed

by an early autumn snow

still “hanging in there”

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age

Frigid temperatures and ice crystals in the air create rainbows on each side of the sun called sun dogs. An artistic snow scape on a lake from heavily packed snow. Drifts and frozen ripples and waves are a wonder to behold, if one does not mind frosty eyelashes and cold biting through the warmest parka.
