Snowstorm (with Valentines note)


Weather warnings all rang out
Schools were closed on Friday
Kids excited and danced about
Glad for snow coming that day

The stores were filled the day before
As shoppers prepared for the storm
Checking what they needed once more
To remain healthy, alive, and warm

Driving can be a challenge in the snow
Safety and patience becomes the key
Leave room for city crews and know
They work long hours for you and me

If you are not able to clean your driveway
Don't be afraid to ask someone who can
Most people are willing to help in any way
Looking out for needs of their fellow man

Consider a corresponding analogy with me
Perhaps your life is raging like a blizzard
Deep drifts clutter your mind to clearly see
Because your path has become haphazard

You are stuck in a rut, wanting a way out
Without any success, spinning your wheels
Wandering aimlessly and filled with doubt
Seeking someone who knows how you feel

My friend, if God is not in the driver's seat
You will continue to swerve out of control
His steering wheel power nothing can defeat
Find refuge before your battles take their toll

Just say a prayer telling God you cannot win
Acknowledge your sin and open up your heart
Putting your faith in Him alone and let Him in
He will forgive and cleanse you in every part

No greater gift will be given or received today
Then to say, "Jesus I want You as my Valentine
I need Your matchless love, show me the way"
He will reach out and say, "Child you are Mine"
