Godís Grace, Amazing


The snow drifted in smothering the sleeping town
Swirling, drifting, enveloping
Temperatures plummeting announce a bitter cold blizzard

The stranger struggled on in his thin torn trench coat
Stumbling, struggling, shivering
Snow caked hair, eyelashes and clothes, his sockless feet freezing

The wind shrieked on, snapping freshly snow-laden trees
Assaulting, shrieking, battering
Sheets of ice polished streets, blocked, treacherous, a hazard

The stranger staggered, his burning fingers turned white
Sobbing, staggering, regretting
Driven, forced on, stinging arctic air causing harsh wheezing

The storm raged, the night sky menacing, sinister
Tormenting, raging, persisting
Houses lay buried, hidden, masked, appearing haphazard

The stranger paused, burying his head in dead hands
Despairing, pausing, praying
His wife, small child, helpless, alone in the ditch, agonizing

The spreading warmth now reviving his heart and limbs
Refreshing, warming, sustaining
Looking up he sees light, a home, renewed, hope recognized

The door urged open, his cry heard, wrapped in warm blankets, dry clothes
Hurrying, urging, pleading
Neighbors run, saving his wife, his child, His Grace, Amazing



****
Luke 10:29-37 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? Ö36. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37. And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. (KJB)
