Constancy

With all the crazy goings on in the world, it is useful at times to remember that we still have a few things which remain the same:

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.

Or, to put it less prosaically:

Summer and winter, springtime and harvest
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

May the snow and ice depart quickly from your sidewalks, yet may your grass not require cutting for many long weeks to come.
