SATURDAY SONG


Today it's snowing heavily! Way back in '96 we had a horribly cold winter and just for fun on one of our afternoon programs for our residents, I wrote lyrics that can be sung to the tune of 'Way down upon the Swanee River.'

♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬♬

We love to talk about the weather - to all we know.
This has to be the coldest winter with lots of blowing snow.
Thick fog and icy winds have made it - forty below!
But winter doesn't last forever, neither does ice and snow.

Chorus:
All we want is warmth and sunshine,
each and every day!
But, God knows what it is we're needin',
and He will have His way.

It's true the days are getting longer, spring will return,
and after that the joys of summer! Oh, how the sun will burn!
Hot days and muggy nights won't please us, for cold we'll yearn.
Let's thank our loving, heav'nly Father that seasons take a turn.

Chorus:
All we want is warmth and sunshine,
each and every day!
But, God knows what it is we're needin',
and He will have His way.

How true! And I do love snow. However, I was most happy to enjoy our first really warm day of the year today, even if it is just a sneak-peak of things to come.
