Winter Has A Joy For Me


I WILL PRAISE THE LORD AT ALL TIMES

Our Spring in the valley had sprung with new-born buds, flowers and the always incredible tulips and daffodils when the King of Heaven in His great providence rained upon us from Heaven water in the form of snow for the earth.  How beautiful it is and in its purist form looks like heavenly clouds of white beauty.  So as we approach the end of winter and begin our spring we are filled with joy everlasting because of His love, His gift of life eternal, His daily providence in our lives and His grace to meet the day with anticipation for our future here in all seasons and forevermore with Him in eternity.  Be  filled with joy today as you praise and worship your Holy God and Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ and thank Him for your daily blessings in all seasons! _TheologyGirl-ReformedWomen

Winter has a joy for me,
While the Saviour’s charms I read,
Lowly, meek, from blemish free,
In the snowdrop’s pensive head.

Spring returns, and brings along
Life-invigorating suns:
Hark! the turtle’s plaintive song
Seems to speak his dying groans!

Summer has a thousand charms,
All expressive of his worth;
‘Tis his sun that lights and warms,
His the air that cools the earth.

What! has Autumn left to say
Nothing of a Saviour’s grace?
Yes, the beams of milder day
Tell me of his smiling face.

Light appears with early dawn,
While the sun makes haste to rise;
See his bleeding beauties drawn
On the blushes of the skies.

Evening with a silent pace,
Slowly moving in the west,
Shows an emblem of his grace,
Points to an eternal rest.**
