After the Winter God Sends Spring
Springtime is a seasonOf Hope and Joy and Cheer,There’s beauty all around usTo see and touch and hear . . .So, no matter how downheartedAnd discouraged we may be,New hope is born when we behold Leaves budding on a tree . . .Or when we see a timid flower Push through the frozen sodAnd open wide in glad surpriseIts petaled eyes to God . . .For this is just God saying - ”lift up your eyes to Me, And the bleakness of your spirit, Like the budding springtime tree,Will lose its wintry darknessAnd your heavy heart will sing” -For God never sends Winter Without the Joy of Spring.
