Spring showers open a world of happiness for all...




Their roots snuggle beneath a blanket of snow,
waiting for God's nourishment to flourish and grow.
His rays and showers cause the snow to fade away,
tiny buds creep up through the mud and the clay.

Their small heads are bald and appear dead,
God's showers wash away the winter's dread.
His nourishment feeds and keeps them warm,
as suddenly as a new blossom  forms and is born.

Some blossoms are purple, blue, yellow, and green,
a magnificent sight like nothing I've ever seen.
Their foliage grows and draws my eyes to them,
tinted heads bow as I clasp their bloom within.

The glory of Spring bursts throughout the days,
colors galore bring about fantastic displays.
Everywhere my eyes feast and glance to see,
blossoms capture the heart and soul in me.

Spring showers bring forth a newness to the day,
where souls come alive with a desire to pray.
In every direction God's beauty is present,
leaving our souls full of freshness and essence.

Spring showers open a world of happiness to all,
cause men, women, and children to stand up tall.
Renewal drenches as they see the grandeur abound,
God sent new life to Mother Earth for another round.

God's glory is felt in every facet of spring, Barbara. Unfortunately, for those of us in SE Texas, Spring is only a couple of weeks. Then, the 90 degree temperatures come for a month, before giving way to hurricane season and triple-digit heat.

Beautiful writing, as always,

God's natural vim and vigour is spring sunlight and restorative warmth, which are captured in your appreciative words here, Barbara. You paint its rainbow with your words. Amazing how this old earth and our old bones can be forever new and forever renewed through this startling work of grace. And no two days the same... WONDERFUL! TY Kate xx
