Wintry blast

Though the rain may fall and the wind be blowing, And cold and chill is the wintry blast; Though the cloudy sky is still cloudier growing, And the dead leaves tell that the summer has passed; My face I hold to the stormy heaven. My heart is as calm as the summer sea, Glad to receive what my God has given, What e'er it be. When I feel the cold, I can say, "He sends it", And His winds blow blessing, I surely know; For I've never a want but that He attends it; And my heart beats warm, though the winds may blow.

Very nice. You have been doing a wonderful job on Sunday mornings getting me ready for church! Thank you.

This is wonderful to read on the lord's day!

Very good words and appropriate for the day and the season. I think I'll prepare for Church. Thanks

So comforting, Patsy. I printed it off so I could read it when the way gets dim.

Nice post. Happy Sunday to you.

I forgot to explain. Yes, it might be confusing. We are entering the autumn season. But here the planting and the blooming season starts around October or November, whenever the first rains come after the dry season (which begins in March or April). It almost never goes down to freezing in our winter.

Hi Patsy,

I always love your Sunday morning devotionals. I read it early before I went to church. Now I'm waiting for my daughter and family to arrive. They flew into Memphis and are driving out here from there. Will arrive by 5 PM. Can't wait.

Patsy, I enjoyed your meme, and I thank you for tagging me. I did this meme a couple of months ago, but might just do it again after this week. My daughter and family will be here until Friday, so I won't be online much until after they leave.

But I want to wish you and the Bennie a Happy Thanksgiving.

Hugs and blessings,
