*****************************************************************************************************************
In the snowy, cold of winter, underneath the cloudy sky,
in the middle of December, you share the thinking why;
why do the leaves fall, why does the sky fill up with gray,
where do the birds go, think about it seasons change.

Sometimes life is gray like winter, and the tears fall from your eyes
Your heart is cold like December, you start to wonder why;
where did my faith go, why don't things ever go my way,
why don't my friends call, be encouraged 'cause seasons change.

Just like a bell has got to ring, just like a bird has got to sing.
Just like the sun has gotta shine, just like a poem has gotta rhyme.
Just like a river has to flow, just like the wind has gotta blow;
after the rain, after your pain,
(you won't be the same), 'cause seasons change.

Jesus calmed the raging sea,
Jesus set the captives free,
Jesus gave sight to the blind,
Jesus turned water into wine .

Jesus broke the grip of sin,
Jesus died and He rose again,
He'll do it for you, He'll carry you through,
He'll make you brand new 'cause seasons change.

It's good to know that You're with me and I am with you
in the passing of my seasons change.


                              I love you All........Momma
