I love springtime~ A time when the earth awakens from her Winter's slumber and Mother Nature cradles in her womb, the first tender shoots of bright blooms in the garden. The trees break forth into fresh buds, and brooks, clear as crystal, begin to run merrily along their way. They almost sound like they are singing; they are so happy to be freed from their captivity of ice and snow!
Soft warm breezes stir the air and the lilt of songbirds outside my window harken to me early in the morning. I welcome the melody of my little feathered friends; I have dreamt about birdsong all winter!
The earth has come to life again and I too, seem to come alive and I relish each new wonder of the day.
In the evening, just as the sun goes down, the tiny spring peepers behind my home begin their chorus.
I find myself once again, as delighted as a child when all of these wonders take place. It's good to be alive, and I give thanks to God who has created this new season for our enjoyment.
I have shared this lovely tribute to spring with you from sweet Sandi over at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/ She has a lovely blog. Please go and visit her!
Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~ Virgil A. Kraft
