Almost Spring

earth stretches

and slowly awakens

from its  slumber

in no hurry

to please the masses

shivering from the cold

in its time

the earth warms

the ground beneath our feet

the activity of green growth

begins to make an appearance

and very soon

there will be an explosion of color

how very good our God

is to us

as He gifts us

with the beauty of Spring..

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, And making it bear and sprout , And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So shall My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

                                                            Isaiah 55: 10-11
