Spring Promise

img_0838We’re told in Genesis that one season will follow the next, “as long as the earth endures.”  God’s promise. 

Summer. For some It’s the most fun of the seasons.  Autumn is the flashiest with it’s color changing foliage.  Winter, perhaps the most dreaded. And then there’s spring. For some it’s the best part of the cycle.  The reoccurring seasons are a reminder of promises kept.

img_0842Yesterday, I took a tour of the yard, a small city plot.  These pictures show some of what I found. Signs of spring!  Rebirth!

Here they are, the crocuses.  They’ve been blooming for a couple of days, continuing their annual cycle.


Then there are the tulips.  Deer food. I’m convinced that there’s a roving band of deer delinquents that wanders the city blocks in the wee hours of the morning looking for a tasty bite of tulip.  Those are the buds emerging from between the chopped off leaves. I hope they make it.

Snowdrops!  The surprise of the afternoon nestled at the base of the back fence.  In many-some years of living here, this was a first time sighting. 


It’s early yet..  There’s more to come as these daffodils promise.

I’m sure there are many things for which this spring 2020 will be remembered.  But as the seasonal cycle continues and next spring 2021 rolls around I hope to be reminded once again of God’s promises.  “…great is your faithfulness… “ Lamentations 3:23 Today’s gift.

    A lovely reminder.  Thanks.   Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.” Minor Myers Jr.   I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor in the morning, the devil says, “Oh, crap, she’s up.”
