~Blooms, Blossoms and Birdhouses~

We have had so many plants awaken this month, it's been such a joy to see the Lords handiwork! What a creative and artistic God we serve! :D

Here's our azaleas... :)

...and one of our bradford pear trees...

...along with one of our lovely red bud trees!

My younger brother collected these pretty wildflowers one afternoon...the orange ones are called "Indian Paintbrush".

My younger brothers also enjoyed painting birdhouses a while back!

They did a wonderful job on them and the birdhouses made a great addition to our spring decorations! :D

This lovely butterfly was pleased to perch on this bright, yellow dandelion! :)

One day we looked out the window and saw these beautiful geese just outside our back yard!

I am grateful for each season the Lord has blessed us with in both creation and also in our lives!

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven."
~Ecc. 3:1~

Have a wonderful spring!!

~This Is My Father's World~

This is my Father's world,
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world:
I rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
his hand the wonders wrought.

2. This is my Father's world,
the birds their carols raise,
the morning light, the lily white,
declare their maker's praise.
This is my Father's world:
he shines in all that's fair;
in the rustling grass I hear him pass;
he speaks to me everywhere.

3. This is my Father's world.
O let me ne'er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father's world:
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
