Blanket Of White


Blanket of white,

fell day and night,

beautiful glow,

inches of snow.

The silence is golden,

when snow has fallen;

a different kind of sound,

with snow on the ground.

Crunches under your feet,

looks crispy and neat,

sometimes it's danger,

sometimes it's laughter.

We need to take care,

as we venture out there,

best be equipped,

to minimise the slips!

I was walking out in the snow yesterday. I had several layers on, my wellies, and thick socks. The exposed parts of me were very cold, thankfully this was only my face. My legs were cold despite wearing trousers and my top clothes being long and coming quite a way down.

I couldn't help thinking about those less fortunate than me. Homeless, poor...those who cannot heat their homes, or have enough warm clothes to wear.

Do we do enough for others? Do we care for them or do we just judge them and their situations? What can we do to help them?

For each of us, our ability to help others will depend on our own situations. But we can all do something.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Matthew 25: 34 - 36 Bible
