Christmas Eve


As I sit here, in the stillness of a Christmas Eve afternoon, there are things both heavy and light on my heart. The song "Winter Snow", written by Audrey Assad is on repeat via iTunes, fueling my contemplation. A soothing, encouraging, reminder of the Peace brought to earth that day so long ago.

Could’ve come like a mighty storm
with all the strength of a hurricane
You could’ve come like a forest fire
with the power of heaven in your flame

But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below

Could’ve swept in like a tidal wave
or an ocean to ravish our hearts
You could have come through like a roaring flood
to wipe away the things we’ve scarred

But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below

No, your voice wasn’t in a bush burning
No, your voice wasn’t in a rushing wind
It was still, it was small, it was hidden

But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below
