She stared out the window,
Though she didn’t really know
why she was watching
For footprints in the snow.

Expectation filled her;
She was apprehensive too,
Studying the ground
For footprints old or new.

There was just a blanket
As far as the eye could see,
Stretching smooth and white;
Where could her darling be?

Then she thought she saw him,
But he seemed quite far away,
It was hard to tell;
She wished that it were day.

She turned from the window
Because she was trembling so;
Then she heard the source
Of footprints in the snow.

He came to her at last;
Such warmth and joy filled her heart;
Held there in his arms,
She knew they’d never part.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
