"Be like a flower and turn your face to the sun."
- Kahlil Gibran
It's Springtime Soon
No more winter with the dross
sometimes then our hearts felt lost
We lift our thoughts to better days
soon it will be Spring__
The Poppies out, the blue birds sing
The sunlight shines on everything
Beautiful colors everywhere
Yes, soon it will be SPRING!
God in the Seasons
In Spring we are reminded
of the magnificence of Your creation,
as the earth is covered in verdant green,
with splendid splashes of color,
and we witness birth everywhere,
of animals bearing their young,
of buds turning into leaves and flowers
and our own moods being reborn
with renewed energy and life.
in Summer, we remember
the warmth of Your love for us
and the light of Your goodness.
Both are everywhere for those who look.
Thank You for butterflies,
birds and wildlife for us to enjoy,
water to swim in,
and weather that frees us to romp and play
while outdoor pleasures are at their peak.
In Fall, we thank you for Your cooling breezes,
that bring relief from the relentless summer heat.
We see bright colors fading and dying,
leaves turning brown, crisp, disintegrating,
only to be reborn next year,
reminding us that every living thing, including us,
must die in some way before being reborn.

In Winter, as white snow blankets the ground,
we are reminded of Your purity and Your perfection.
The complexity and beauty of each single snowflake
only hints at Your transcendent intelligence and creativity.
We hunker down and snuggle in,
knowing this season will wind down
and Spring will reappear, as it always has
because You created an orderly, predictable universe,
not by chance, but from your flawless design.
Thank You for the
and everything in them
that You created for our enjoyment.
The lustre on those leafy trees
after the summer rain
settles upon my soul with bliss
and says that all is well.
The flowers are shining oh so bright
with their colorful petals
The air is so clear, so pleasantly clear
it makes me smile again.
I love to go out walking sometimes
in the summer rain
It makes me want to laugh and sing
when it softly falls on me.

“I love how summer just wraps it’s
arms around you like a
Autumn leaves but Jesus Never!
Spring is almost here
No more Winter in two weeks
No more people feeling bleak
You've sent the Rain now send the Sun
The Flowers will grow and the Bees will hum
Birds will Tweet down every Street
And Happy little children's feet.
