“Thank God for the Promise of Spring”

Thank God for the Promise of Spring.

Here we are, only 5 days away, and this song, and thought, has been on my mind a lot lately.
A lot.

“Thank God for the Promise of Spring.”

Let’s see: Last night, it was 6 days away from Spring, and we were in the middle of our latest big snow storm. I was snow-blowing the driveway at 8:00 PM. I caught a break in the storm, and got rid of about a foot of snow. If I had waited, the snow would have been over the top of the snow blower. This morning, only 5 days away from Spring, at 8:00 AM, I was snow blowing the driveway.

The sun was out … not a cloud in the sky … the driveway looked beautiful … what does this mean?
At Noon, it was snowing again.

Thank God for the Promise of Spring.

This is March. In the first days of March, we have had plenty of nights below zero. And, I mean, way below zero.

Thank God for the Promise of Spring.

Last Saturday, the high temperature was 3 degrees. That was the high temperature. In the middle of the day, sun beating down, I looked at the thermometer on the deck, and, just once, I thought I saw 5 degrees. Nope … just the angle I was looking …

Carol and I traveled on Sunday … got out of town … it was all the way up to 12 degrees.Felt like wearing a tee-shirt.

I just realized that I have featured this song before.
I’m not surprised.
This idea of thanking God for the promise of Spring … comes every year.

Every year.

Thank God for the Promise of Spring … every year.

It just seems like, every year … we look forward to it more.
Don’t you?

Since I have featured this song before, I looked at what I had written previously, about Winter, about Mama’s words, and about this song.
I’ll include a couple of links to stories I’ve written before about this song.

Maybe I’m getting older, but, it seems, each year, I look more and more forward to Spring.

God’s promises are true.
Including the one about Springtime.

I’ve written much about how God used the songs of Cynthia Clawson to “pull me through.”

Here is the link to “It Won’t Rain Always” from January 20, 2016:
It Won’t Rain Always

This is from one of the Bill and Gloria Gaither television programs, as Cynthia Clawson, surrounded by “Homecoming” cast, sings “Thank God for the Promise of Spring.”

This is exactly what Gospel Music should do … what writing should do … what singing should do … what our online ministry strives to do … to bless, inspire, and encourage … How better to do that, in the midst of our latest snow storm … to be blessed … to be inspired … to be encouraged … by God’s promises …

Thank God for the Promise of Spring …
