screams of delight
ring out through the stillness
as we plunge down the
cold, refreshing snowy slope

thrilled with the speed of flying
on our sleds
we rejoice together
with smiles and laughter

slowly skidding to a stop
sprays of white crystals cover us
we lay in stillness
and gaze at the glorious sky

we warm ourselves by the bonfire
while snowflakes gently flutter down
hot chocolate coats our throats and
we sigh in contentment and gratitude

thank You God for family fun
in Your wonderful winter world


  1. Anne,
    Thanks for the great poem and picture~looks like a great place for sledding!
    Have a Happy and Blessed New Year!

  2. Oops~ Forgot to tell you; you have an award at my Blessings For the Day blog.

  3. Happy New Year!
    Sounds like y'all are having a blast!
    that's awesome and lovely the way you shared

  4. Awesome poem! I liked the lullaby, too:) Do you know that I have never taken Michaela sledding? Isn't that awful? My knees won't make it up the steep hills. She does go sledding over my sister's house though, but the hill is smaller there.

  5. Wonderful picture, and the perfect poem to go with it: it's the way the snow looks here just now, with more on the way--what fun!
