Easter Snow in Texas
I mowed the grass yesterday, a mere 24 hours ago
And I just looked out the window – to see a world of snow!
Easter weekend! In Texas! You know, TEXAS – cactus, cowboys and such?!
‘Spose I coulda been more surprised, but, I declare – not by much!
Birds didn’t mind, ‘cause there they sat, snackin’ on sunflower seed
I’s peekin’ through the kitchen window, jus’ enjoyin’ watchin’em feed
Cardinals both – a beautiful two – Mr. Cardinal and his Mrs.
An’ I was struck right quick by this lil tho’t: That all I saw . . . is His . . .
The Birds of Red, The Seeds of Black, The Snowflakes of pure White
If I should live to 100 -or more - I will always remember that sight
And remember, too – and so should you – that all that’s been, will be or is
Everything, Everyplace, Every life, Everyone – All of these . . . are His . . . .
