Lo, The Non-Winter Is Still Here

LLo, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. Blossoms appear in the land. The time of the songbird has arrived. The cooing of the mourning dove is heard in our land.
from the Song of Solomon 

My tulips are blooming!

Tulips are my second favorite flower with peonies coming in first.

My narcissus (don't know what the plural is) narcissuses are blooming.

My azaleas are blooming!

Am I blooming?

Are you blooming?

Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom.  
They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

Your flowers are beautiful. It seems like spring has come early for more than a few people, including us. Nobody is complaining though. We are all loving the warmth of the sun and watching the trees slipping into their pastel colored dresses. As for blooming? I ask the Lord every day to guide my words, steps, and actions. Isn't He wonderful, so quick to come to our aid, so willing to guide us when we ask?
Have a blessed day, my friend. love you.
