Waiting for Spring

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“…Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
And He changes the times and the seasons;”
Daniel 2:20-21a NKJV
The wind blows cold this mid-March day.
The birds have tucked their wings away
To wait until the signs of spring
Encourage them again to sing.
This winter’s grip seems strong and fierce,
With cold that bites and winds that pierce
Through bundled layers. Yet I know
That sun will long outlast the snow.
And soon enough the winds will change,
The atmosphere will rearrange.
Then on the wings of robins borne,
Spring will arrive, both wet and warm.
For God’s ordained the seasons, too.
Each one will come as it is due.
So as I wait for warmer days,
I’ll bundle up, and give God praise.
“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24 NKJV
