I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Living Sculptures

Ice shining off the roadways,
Ice patterns on the trees,
Ice sparkling off grass and concrete,
Delicate ice sculptures everywhere I turn I see.
Cause cancellations, rescheduling the order of the day,
To prevent crashes and congested, dangerous traffic flows.
Frustrating interruptions and yet…in the enforced time,
Life slows….

Do I admire the unique beauty all around
Or respond with frustrations, anger and complaints?
Maybe instead, I need to take a breath and consider that He
Who created the breathtaking Winter ice sculptures,
Also creates beautiful sculptures of our lives, as we
Allow Jesus access, bow
And follow Him.
