Does not the flowering lacy tree,
who thought Spring had come,
yet finds its beauty covered
again and again and again
by wintry storms of ice and snow,
does not the flowering lacy tree
because of the Savior’s tender
loving plans find themselves
even more beautiful and blessed
than before? For unexpected winter
ice and rain and storms may break
off a bloom or branch or cut down
a tree but even in this we can know
and trust that our loving, omniscient
Father and Savior has a beautifully
magnificent purpose and plan. For our
blessed Triune God doeth all things well.
