Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there's a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. ~~ words & music by Natalie Sleeth, 1986 United Methodist Hymnal

A Little Spring Cheer!

Yesterday in my neck of the world it was sunny and beautiful! Trees are starting to show signs of life, jonquils are starting to bloom and beautiful quince is showing off its gorgeous coral blossoms! My VBF brought some jonquils and sprigs of her quince bush to my mother yesterday when we had lunch with her. We both were sighing with anticipation about getting to work out in the yard! I'm going to get some of her quince to plant in my yard! Even my daylilies are popping their green heads out of the winter droll and then.....today I look out my window and it's raining and cold and miserable and we might get sleet or snow! I hurried out yesterday afternoon to cut the jonquils that were blooming before they got hammered by winter weather! Why don't you get a cup of coffee (with some hazlenut creamer of course!) and come join me at the kitchen table with these bright yellow beauties! I bought the little mug with the bluebird on it at TJ Maxx about a week ago! Don't you just love that place! You can find the best little treasures there! God Bless you all and thanks for dropping by!

  6. Those jonquils look beautiful contrasted with the pretty cup! What I want to know is why that pretty kitchen isn't shown in the picture. laurie
