Nature’s Jubilee !

Frozen tundra awakens from her slumber
Spring bursts forth like a volcano

Life erupts from seeming stillness
Darkness to light; drab to refulgent

Winter’s browns transform into a kaleidoscope of colors
Wild and free, fragrances flow across the sky

Grass greens, trees bud and flowers sprout
Rains come, sun shines and birds nest

Sowers sow, bees pollinate and the earth responds
Grains top the stems of reeds and seeds appear

The earth rejoices, and God smiles
Nature’s jubilee is on full display

Daffodils Springing Forth Hope


??????????????????????????????? It is the advent of another spring in the Midwest. As usual, the weather is unpredictable, with one day sunny and 78 degrees and the next rainy and 43. It is this rain which ushers in an abundance of green. From the hardened cold earth of winter, life erupts in vibrant shapes and colors. Each plant and tree is unique. I have found that with some flowers and plants, the unopened blossom can be as beautiful as the fully bloomed flower. Such is the case with these gems. The green will give way to bright yellow in short order, and the stems will sway toward whatever direction the sun’s rays fall upon them. Nature is simply so wonderful to behold !   ( Psalm 96: 11 & 12 )
