Our daughter-in-law, Melissa, took this photo of the pretty pot of tulips we got her for Easter!

Winter's white blanket has melted away,
Warm breezes gently are blowing.

Sun sends her rays to awaken the flowers.

New life through everything's flowing.
Birds have returned with their beautiful song.
Trees are now dressing in velvety green.

Blossoms abound with a lovely perfume.

Everywhere new life is seen.

Just as the earth is now filled with new life

Christ brings to your heart
the newness of spring.

Old passed away behold all things are new!

Gratefully praise Him and sing.

Praise be to God, our Creator, our King!
Let everything that has breath praises sing!

God in His Majesty new life did bring!

The tulips are beautiful. I've got a few blooming in the flower beds that look a lot like the ones in the picture. Mmm. I love spring! What a nice reminder it is of our new life in Christ.

Hi Karin, Lovely tulips!!!!! Hope you had a great week/weekend.

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family. BUT--the weather was horrible. Oh Well!!!!

I'm going to check through some of your older blog posts.

What a miracle spring is after the quiet time of winter! I love it when plants that had completely disappeared underground with the cold weather suddenly appear as if out of nowhere as the temperature rises. A real miracle.
