The Light Shining Through

In the middle of the storm
moving the snow so deep
seeing the cross before the church
buried by my feet
thinking about where to send
the snow from the blower
didn’t want to cover
the cross any deeper
But on the next day
the light shining through
the heat of the strings of lights
the light of his cross
shining up through the snow
not hidden or buried at all
Shining in the night, all through the day
a beacon of hope to share
reminding us as we prepare
for the child to come
the choice the man made for all
