Springtime in the Northwest

Oh Lovely Spring!
-
Birds singing
Trees Blossoming
Flowers Awakening
-
" The winter is past
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth
the season of singing has come,
and the cooing of doves is heard in our land "
-
Song of Solomon 2:11.12
-
True here except for the rain part,
but that is what makes it so green and pretty,
and oh how we enjoy our sunny blue skied days!
They are like gentle gifts of beauty from the Father.
-
Spring reminds us of the promise of resurrection,
as in the verse above by Martin Luther
( calligraphy and watercolor )

That is beautiful! The miracle of God bringing new life from the cold, dead earth fills me with joy this time of year as well.

I too enjoy that Martin Luther quote! And the quote from the Song of Songs is one of my favourites. It has a special meaning for me.

Thanks for a lovely visit.

Beautiful!!!!!!! What have you been up to lately? I have been working like a busy BEE. I am trying to get caught up from being gone to ADORN ME & then I have another event I leave for in April & I signed up for a swap that GREW. I now have to make 26 gifts. I tell you I am not pleased with that! But, it should be a good weekend. I've missed visiting with you. Hope all is well. HUGS! Charlene
