SPRING GARDEN

garden-surprise-natural-focal-point-photography

A spring garden is full of surprises:  It seems like nothing is alive there; then blossoms open overnight.  The frozen, sleeping ground softens and wakes up; mud gives way to young, green shoots.

Birds return with happy songs, building their nests and laying eggs.  Soon they’ll be looking for yummy treats to feed their babies; then, they’ll teach them to fly.

Spring’s fragrance is unique and pungent:  A mixture of warming earth, rain-washed air, new grass and blossoms.  So different from the cold smell of winter.

Oh, the thrill of new life, it’s promise, unrealized dreams and possibilities!  May all that is birthed in this young season grow to maturity and fruition.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
