Kids having fun in the snow.

A Wonderful Winter's Day

          The first snowfall quietly came,
          This morning with God s rising sun;
          He left a blanket clean and white,
          So we might have some winter fun.

          Let s break out our boots and our sleds,
          Find a steep hill to slide on down;
          We ll play til we can t feel our toes,
          Then pass the hot chocolate around.

          We ll light a fire in the clearing,
          Just big enough to warm our hands;
          Then call all the children around,
          Tell them about God s winter plans.

          How God provides the snow for us,
          Simply one of His many gifts;
          Along with the ice on the lake,
          In His way, our spirits He lifts.

          We ll cut a hole in the ice and fish,
          Atop of the ice we can skate;
          There is so much to see and do,
          On this, God s wonderful winter day.

          It s all in how we look at it,
          Blessings from God or nature s wrath?
          It depends on what s in our hearts,
          The answer s as simple as that.
