Snow Covered Roses
(True Story)

Picture and poem by
Elaine Mercado

One early October day, I awoke to the morning’s light

 to a most beautiful and puzzling  sight.

My covenanted roses were covered with snow.

That would surely kill them and I loved them so.

As I looked at them, I realized that God’s plan was better than mine.

For His beauty was much more beautiful and divine.

When you think life seems to go against you

and you no longer know what is true.

Don’t fight the moment …. He knows what is best.

Remember my roses covered with snow and do not protest.

Trust in tomorrow and try to look at life with His eyes.

Your world may be filled with wonder and surprise.
