When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sunday Devotional - New Life

Red to White
by Patricia A Pitterle

Snow white, 
glistening, gleaming, floating, fleeting
softly falling down.
Covering the world 
In a blanket of freezing whiteness.
All traces of the world as we know it
brushed away
In a coat of sparkling white.

Each time I see a snowfall
I stop to pause 
and remember
How we have been promised
that our sins
though red as scarlet
can be changed 
to be white as snow

A Father sent a Son
to be the way
that would bring us safely home.
He came to be the sacrifice
And with His blood
All traces of worldly scarlet

bathed away
In a coat of sparkling love


  1. Love this poem...very nice. I named my daughter Scarlett...and I remind her that this is the color that Christ will be wearing when he returns to the earth! Now she likes to remind me of that fact!

  2. Very thought provoking. And the snow, so pretty! Happy New Year!

  3. Beautiful! Did you write this? What talent!!!

  4. Thank you so much for your comments today. Yes I did write it. The picture just seemed to call out for a poem to go with it.
