Psalm 45 
Isaiah 9:1–7
2 Peter 1:12–21
Luke 22:54–69

So we have this prophetic message more fully confirmed; you would do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19-21

Snow blankets the darkening
city of their dreams,
stark, unforgiving now,
swaddled shadows trundle,

spilling plastic bags,
dodge clanging street cars,
swerving police cruisers,

alert for small kindness,
comfort in greeting,
heat on supper platters,

splashing water, blankets,
cling again to 
Out of the Cold solace,
Bright sun spills out

women, men, sporting
replete bellies,
faces of eternal Christ

urging into new day
city of their dreams, 


– Janice Barnes
