Preview of Spring
Thank you, dear Lord, for the preview of spring.
Early this morning, I heard a bird sing.
Breezes feel gentle, not blustery cold.
Sunshine and blue skies are precious like gold.
Now the prediction of snow makes us cringe,
but, upon springtime our hopes do not hinge.
Jesus, who once stilled the storm, is still here
Telling us all through our lives, “Do not fear.”
