God's Grace - Poem by Jean Penner

On a wintry night surrounded in peace,
Snowflakes tattooing the air,
Echoes of grace whisper in joy
That God is as near as a prayer.

Looking from Heaven to the eyes of His child,
His gaze melts the fears of the day,
Like a comforting hug, He soothes us with love,
A promise He won’t look away.

Eyes ever watching the joys in our lives,
Ready to ease all our pain,
God waits to reach out and capture our tears,
And turn them to snowflakes again.

Looking from Heaven to the face of His child,
God’s smile warms the depths of our soul,
Caressing our hearts with compassion,
Keeping us warmed in the cold.

In the dark of the night, His presence is near,
His love like a shimmering glow,
Emitting a peace that covers our lives,
God’s grace falling down as the snow.

Using the flakes that drift from His hand,
He gingerly shapes us with grace,
Keeping us near in the image of Him,
Shining His light on our face.

On a wintry night surrounded in peace,
Snowflakes tattooing the air,
We look up to Heaven and know with a smile -
That God is as near as a prayer.

    wooow! this poem it make me cry, but this three thing I want to share is love, faith and forgiveness.
    for me it heaps of things I want in my life, but I keep pray, and wait, until God answer my prayer
