Bursting Forth in Spring

After spending what seemed like a long time 'sorting' through stuff (others might call it Spring Cleaning), I got weary of looking at inanimate objects and decided I needed to go outside and feel Spring in my yard.
Spring is such a vibrant time of year! I love the feeling of everything stretching, bulging with promise and bursting forth in the most beautiful symphony of color and fragrance! I don't know how anyone can be outside and not feel how delicious it is - I wish I could drink it!
I took some photos from around my yard to honor the One who is responsible for all the glorious displays. He has my full attention and I love Him so! I could sing of His love forever!

You can see that she bears some scars, but she lives! ! !

Beautiful flowers. I have tulips that are getting ready but that's about all. Just started getting small leaves on the trees. Someday things might be green again.
