RICHMOND — I can scarcely believe today’s rain has turned into snow showers this evening – with an inch or so accumulation, no less!

Don’t worry, friends, the jonquils, daffodils and buttercups in your yard will survive this probable last bout of winter weather. Though the temperatures are chilly, they are far from freezing.  

I have seen beautiful tulips standing knee-deep in snow, yet God protected their blooms to remain beautiful for weeks.

What an amazing phenomenon, or is it?

God created the fauna and flora in the world. Is it any wonder He governs His creations.

If you are like me, when April rolls around with its fickle weather, you never know if we will be getting gusts of wind that send garbage cans tumbling down the streets or peaceful sunny days which seem to promise a never-ending supply of warm temperatures and sunshine.

One thing is undeniable, warmer weather is on its way.

Don’t forget to move your clock one hour forward this Saturday night. This means you will lose one hour, so don’t be late for church Sunday morning.
