In the Beginning

I wonder how many of us have been hovering over our plants looking for signs of newness, signs of life in the form of blooms. We have not seen a single snowflake this winter. Maybe a few of you would have been willing to auction some of your snow off to the highest bidder. I like new beginnings and I may be repeating myself but it is true. I appreciate opportunities that allow me to make improvements, to change for the better, to make better choices and decisions. This time of the year represents for many, New Life, Resurrection. A new day to revive perhaps what has gotten stale in our daily regime. Here is a little preview of what’s happening in our yard. I see beauty in the face of a flower. Ladybugs are a reminder that all is ok and that God is in control..

DSC_0030We are called to  walk by faith and not by sight. We were not seeing signs of spring, and even though we knew it was coming we wanted to see evidence. The little plants were doing their thing underneath the blanket of cold. Surviving without our help. Being patient and waiting for their time to shine and put a smile on our faces..

  1. What a fabulous post, Roberta. I enlarged each photo so I could see it in jumbo version. And you found a DIAMOND! in your garden. But every picture is a gem. The last four lines give me something to think about, in these days when I feel like I need a giant lift. Thanks for the reminder. You’ve cleared up a little of the murky. 🙂

      • Roberta, I have not been able to read all posts for quite some time. Just stopping in here and there. If I missed something, I’m sorry. I hope it’s nothing serious, although hospital is not a good indication. I so hope I’m wrong. My best to both of you.

      • My hubby is home today.He was going to have a new shoulder implant(replacement) put in last week but they discovered infection and so it will be postponed until it clears up. For now they sent him home with a pic line and he will administer the medication. He is making up for lost sleep right now.. I totally understand Gemma. I seem to get more behind and do not keep up. Well, once and a while is good. We do what we can. Thank you for sharing your concern. xo

  2. I love ladybugs, too. I thought you might have had a photo of one, but I guess you just mentioned them. That’s ok — it’s almost time to start looking for them again. I saw the first lizard creeping out from under the bushes yesterday, to sun himself. The season is turning, at last.
