Snow in Minnesota: God Has Made Me Glad!

After the snow had come and gone
After a good night’s rest
I woke with a song
The sun had come
And I was hungry
So I went to get some breakfast
and a cup of coffee
I ate and drank
and read my book
Then I went
to take a look
What beauty all around
What contrast
The wonderful blue sky
Brown, marble trees
Very white ice and snow
Tall towers
Reaching to heaven
Decorating the white path
with shadows
O Lord!
What a sight!
I am so delighted by
the beauty I see
White trees everywhere
Surrounded by your beautiful
bright, blue sky
Crisp, icy branches
Reaching to heaven
Thankful for the Sun
A man sits on a bench
full of snow
I said, “Hello”
He said hello too
“A beautiful day,” I said
“Yes it is,” he said
“I’m enjoying the sunshine.”
I found a stick nearby
I used for walking
A dog came along
and wanted to fetch it
I threw it once
 And that was enough
I could see
He was friskier than I
The clean, bright snow
The crisp, cool air
The man in the chair
I thank the Lord today
He is so wonderful
He loves to please me
I love to be near Him
Psalm 73:28
But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
That I may tell of all Thy works.

    Longing to be nearer, longing to see Him.

  2. So beautiful! Awesome friend! Blessings!

  3. Yes, but you really had to be there? I mean there is nothing like the real thing. Though it was a bit cold, it really was (is) beautiful. God is good.
