Snow and ashes

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.       

This snow, deep but fine like ash drifting over your sidewalk will be gone in weeks. But you shovel it today anyway because today you need to walk out of your house. You shovel it while it is snow before it is regret.

Before it melts this short life is yours to choose well with, what to shovel, what not to shovel. Hard to do, to put your shoulder to the work of compassion when you could stay in.

So many conflicting winds would drift your life into ruinous places. Only the warm energy of life guides you, carving out this path and not another.

Mortal, pause amidst your labors, and receive the grace you need.

Remember you are snow, and to snow you shall return.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
