My Journey to God

Winter’s Beauty

In this enchanted place all white and glistening,
You can faintly hear the flutter of fairy wings
If you’re still enough and listening.

Trees adorned in diamonds and lace
Glisten in the morning sunlight
Like penitent souls now filled with grace.

As I gaze at this winter wonderland
Where not even deer have trod,
I give thanks for the beauty all around me—
This lovely gift from God.
