The Bigger Picure: An Advent Prayer

An Advent Prayer:

As the snow blankets muddy streets,

dresses naked tree branches,

and covers the blemishes my footprints make

with its glorious, fresh white,

I pray,

oh,

I pray

that I would remember

one little Snowflake

grew into a Blizzard,

covered all the blemishes

of a dreary, dirty, dingy world.

And I pray,

yes,

I pray

my heart would be entrenched,

smothered,

completely coated

in the bright white Gift of Grace

You so brilliantly offered us

that very first Christmas.
