Flowers appear on the earth;

the season of singing has come…

Song of Songs 2:12 NIV

Spring reminds me of eternity.

Each delicate petal of these early flowers brave frost, snow, or rain, and they remind me of the faithful love of our Creator.

He watches over us too.

We may get bedraggled during storms, but at the core of our story, God is creating everlasting beauty through the washing of His Word.

I often resist His course corrections and complain about harsh weather, however, I eventually relinquish my preconceived plans and rest in His hands. (Listen here to a recent podcast about a flood my house suffered: God is Good)

Life’s hardness presses us into the softness of His hands.

You will fill me with joy in your

presence,

with eternal pleasures at your right

hand.

Psalm 16:11 NIV

pleasing purple glow

of crocuses in sunlight

I seek God’s Presence

believing He rewards those

who delight in Him alone

Those who know your name will trust

in you,

for you, LORD, have never forsaken

those who seek you.

Psalm 9:10 NIV

first bee of the year

collects nectar from crocus

my hope is renewed

remembering God’s promise

to satisfy the seekers

  1. Thanks for the hope of spring shown in your lovely poetry and photos of flowers. Thanks also for the hope you have poured into your audio post, God Is Good. I needed some of that hopefulness today. Thanks for pouring me a tall glass of the hope God gives in his Word. Blessings, Green Light Lady.

  2. All of this is so nourishing to my soul. Like I imagine the nectar is for the bee! Thank you so much, Wendy, for continually taking time to seek Him and see Him and share it with us! Blessings and love and joy!

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
