I love this time of year. You can always tell it’s spring when it is warm enough for the turtles to sunbath on the rocks. I ride my bike along our greenway system on the riverbank. The first fresh green of baby leaves on the trees is coming out good, and I got to take a photo of some of the new blooms on the wildflowers. I hope you can get outside this spring to enjoy the beauty of our God’s wonderful creation. May God bless your day and spring!!
Spring seems to finally be here! I love to see the beautiful flowering trees. Plus it’s amazing to see what a difference an overnight rain makes along our river greenway system. It’s normally just a trickle in some spots but a little rain brings it to almost over the large bridges and over some of the smaller ones. I caught a shot of some kids enjoying walking in the river water that had just barely covered a small bridge. I warned them to be careful. Don’t know if it did any good or not.

Love, Love This Time of Year!
I love this time of year! Everything is so fresh and green, almost a perfect lime green with all the little new leaves coming out. These were taken along our river greenway system again just this morning. The green of the plants was so intense even the reflections in the water looked green. The two Canadian geese looked like they were sitting on green glass! I hope everyone has a pleasant and blessed day. Praise God!
Knee Deep There you are Knee deep in those waters Where most sense danger And then run & scatter Yet you have wandered outward Seemingly without a care All around you life’s flows never cease But do not be so foolish As to let all your follies increase Beware those seemingly Placid waters for now Do not upward rise quickly & underneath them drag you down God still cries, holds out arms To bring you home Back onto a safer ground Wishes for you to cease to roam No longer within his voice’s sound Or out of his love’s caresses Leave those roaring depths of satan’s dangers All those lurid temptations hold nothing but the cunning voice of a stranger Yield to Christ’s love flowing freely In His bright blood on a cross Step out of those cold dark powers That carry only the pain of sin’s deepest loss
The Light is Meant to Shine!
Light is meant to shine White Light against the darkness Hope against despair This world certainly carries a Heart wrenching load Of troubles and cares But us, We Christians, Are meant to shine as lights Of God’s Joy and Holy Might Meant to carry His Love Sent from heavenly abodes above So if you carry Christ’s name Remember diligently His fame Speaks of His grace, mercy And His death’s sacrifice Which brought down to all mankind All of heaven’s glorious light We are meant to carry into A darkened world’s despairing Terror and fright!
