Spring Time...

... at the LENS photo challenge... and, just as important, at MY home!

Spring.... longer evenings... sleepy mornings... beautiful bright colors.

Spring.... the yearly reminder that God makes all things new.  He refreshes.  He restores.
Spring.... the solemn slipping into the sanctuary for prayer.
 When sitting quietly is enough.  When pondering the sufferings of our Savior hurts us deeply, leaving us all the more thankful for so great a salvation.

Looking forward to each new day ahead.  A time to rejoice.  A time to cry.  A time to love.  A time to praise God, from whom all blessings flow.
The blessing of life.
The blessing of vision.
The blessing of dreams.  

Have a beautiful Spring, friends!
