"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

Lord,

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.

Lord,

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.

Lord,

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.

Lord,

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 seasons, Lord,

and everything in them

that You created for our enjoyment.

Summer Rain

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 warm blanket.”

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.

Spring is in the Air

I hear the call of a verdant spring

beckoning me today,

and I hear the song of a happy lark

inviting me to play.

I see the fields awakening

with seedlings pushing through;

and I see the trees are greening

and bathing in the dew.

And overhead I see the sky

all blue and puffy white;

I see the sun come shining forth,

oh, what a sheer delight!

Oh, take my hand and come with me

along the country lane,

w.here the air is fresh, the sun is warm,

and the flowers bloom again!

We'll skip along like children do

when they haven't got a care,

and soon our own will disappear

'cause spring is in the air!

Spring Glories

When the rain is splashing down

On the fields and in the town

Singing winds begin to blow

And the flowers start to grow

How glad I am when I have seen

Those tender leaves of gentle green

They warm my heart and make it sing

For now I know at last it’s spring

Spring makes the world a happy place

You see a smile on every face

Flowers come out and birds arrive

Oh, isn’t it grand to be alive.

The Sensations of Summer

As I lay on the sand

And look up at the sky

I can see the sun shining like a diamond up high

The whooshing waves wash endlessly upon the shore

These are the sensations of summer that I adore

Nothing could replace this moment

Not anything

I pick myself up

Step in to the sea

Forget all my thoughts so my mind is free

As all my troubles drift away from me

I go deeper into the rushing water, letting the waves take control

These are the sensations of summer that I adore.

Colors of Autumn

When shades of brown do mingle

With green upon the tree,

The work of God’s creation

Is there for all to see.

The greens, reds, yellows and browns of Autumn

Are colors upon the trees,

But the colorful leaves are a-changing

When dropping on areas previously clean.

HIS season of Autumn is beautiful

With colors magnificent to view,

The Artist’s palette of colors

Each year is displayed anew.

Morning in Spring

In the early morning light

I see such sights__

Spring is bursting in the air

flowers are budding everywhere

Yes, spring is full of joyful flowers

and warm refreshing showers.
