As I walked outside this morning to check if any Spring flowers were showing themselves, I was welcomed by the chirping of neighborhood birds returning from their winter retreat. May this poem refresh your heart as it did mine.Thanks to Linda Dinell for sending this. The author of the poem is included below. ~ Linda Dinell
~ The Blessings of Spring ~
There are many blessings, that each new Spring brings you can see it bloom about and hear the song it sings.
With winters bleakness over, and brighter days ahead comes promises of new life Springtime loves to spread.
As God unfolds the flowers, and their buds begin to show He gives to us the assurance grace in our hearts will grow.
He sends us the robin’s song, with the promise to provide a shelter under His mighty wing where in His love we can abide.
He melts the snowy covers, and sends the refreshing rain sprinkling us with His mercies to heal winter’s ache and pain.
God’s given to all His Son, to shed upon us a new light and the real blessing of Spring . . . is keeping Jesus in our sight!
Deborah Ann Belka
“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is
over and gone; The flowers appear
on the earth; thetime of the singing
of birds is come, and the voice
of the turtle is heard in our land;”
Song of Solomon 2:11-12
