Snow in Minnesota: God Has Made Me Glad!

 
004
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
 
004
I ate and drank
and read my book
Then I went
to take a look
 
005
What beauty all around
What contrast
The wonderful blue sky
Brown, marble trees
Very white ice and snow
 
007
Tall towers
Reaching to heaven
Decorating the white path
with shadows
 
008
O Lord!
What a sight!
I am so delighted by
the beauty I see
 
009
White trees everywhere
Surrounded by your beautiful
bright, blue sky
 
012
Crisp, icy branches
Reaching to heaven
Thankful for the Sun
 
017
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.”
 
019
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
 
021
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.
