'She Is Mine'

I remember in winters so long ago, when snow every day was the rule, and my children, like I did before them, really did walk that mile in the snow to school.

The landscape was white from late fall to not so early spring, and snow was the one thing you could count on each day a fresh layer to bring.

I remember one day I shoveled the drive, and discovered how very large it was; the snow was deep but not yet packed down, but even so it would take all day without pause.

I started at the garage, clearing the way to the street, piling the shoveled snow so high on both sides, and after a bit I began to feel like I'd created a white canyon, and I was hidden inside.

It did take all day, but then at the end, I could look back and see what I had done, and feel like I had run the race, and the snow-clearing prize I had won.

My job was complete, I put the shovel away, for now the way was clear, until the snowplow went by in the street, and I knew what would happen as it drew near.

The snow from the plow flew like waves from a ship, landing on the edges of the street, and the driveway I'd worked all day long to clear now was plugged
up with snow packed and deep.

It took me even longer to clear that away, for it had melted
and re-froze over time, but when that was gone, I felt wonderfully free, the feeling was simply sublime.

And it made me think of how God took my life and shoveled away all the debris; like clearing away all the snow that had buried the beauty He knew lay beneath.

I had thought that I could never be free, that my heart would always hide, frozen with fear, until Jesus heard that faint little whisper, one that only He could hear.

He not only swept away all the cold, he then breathed new life into my heart, and let me know there was a wonderful future that He planned for me to take part.

I also learned there would always be drifts to clear, things to work on over time, but that if I followed Him, He would get me through it all, for He'd chosen me, and I heard Him say "she is mine."

And oh, what a future He did have for me, one full of love and delight, shiny and new, for my new heart would be filled with love so deep, for that's when I met you.

Now every day is like winning that prize, the feeling just gets better over time, for the greatest joy that is in my life is knowing I am yours and you are mine!

We two are one; we face all that comes, whatever obstacles that may cloud our day, knowing that we can climb over, or shovel straight thru, for God will always provide a way.

Words can never say what is in my heart, they are too small, they just won't do, so I'll have to show in a thousand ways each day how much I love you!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
