On A Cold Winter Day

~*~On A Cold Winter Day~*~
As I gazed out my window
The snow tumbled down.
A blanket of winter
Had covered the ground.

Jack Frost was out painting
Scenes to seal his spell
He'd painted a picture
On the old wishing well.

As I stared at the splendor
My eyes swiftly teared,
For on crystal clear ice
A figure appeared.

Two arms stood outstretched
On the frozen display.
A miracle to warm me
On a cold winter day.

As I called to the children
To share this great joy,
I watched wonderment visit
Each small girl and boy.

We knew surely the sunshine
Would soon melt it away,
But we were gifted with glory
On a cold winter day.

As I turn back the pages
Of winter I see
Loving scenes of a family
Which included me.

The kids are all grown now.
They've all moved away.
But we were blessed by God's beauty
On a cold winter day

"God has made everything beautiful
in its time." Eccl. 3:11

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will
say it again: Rejoice!" Phil. 4:4
