Spring Awakening

Spring yawns


Slips from its disintegrating blanket


And pushes up from its wintry grave.


 Pregnant lilacs in the greening air.


Death consumed by life.


Everywhere.

"I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he dies." John 11:25

Awesome. I am so glad that spring is in the air. I missed it.

Me, too, Kim. Welcome, spring. Welcome, life.

That was beautiful, both the words and the pictures. Made me feel warm on this cold morning!

Thanks, Billy. I think the green may shiver a bit this weekend. :(

You are a bit ahead of us ... but it definitely looks promising

I think spring might want to pull that blanket back up this weekend!
