Snowflake dances to the gentle force of gravity
Its little glitters speak a joyful melody
Cascading down it goes, taking its time,
Lost in the merriment of soft jingle bells
I pause to see it chime its own tune,
Unmindful of my presence, I couldn’t care less
My eyes refuse to blink for its beauty so encompassing
In my heart are many tiny voices of cheer
Please, oh please, keep dancing!
Your gentleness is soothing, your gracefulness caresses
The bubbles brewing within me have dissipated
I am enthralled; thoughts of my lover and friend come
I fold my hands to thank my Companion
And smile over His gentle touch on my soul
Renewed I have become, blessed, and taken
Goodbye, Snowflake. I know I shall see you again.

The time of waiting for Christmas day assures us of the joy of anticipating the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. During Christmas hope in our hearts grows, reigniting our faith as we journey on in this life to the next. Let us be ready for the celebration of the birth of the One who came to love, even unto death (Philippians 2:8), that final glory at his second coming may be ours.
