Always Faithful

The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Isaiah 35:1

Been waiting for Spring
Holding my breath for dogwood trees 
Little buds popping at the ends of upturned fingers

I was surprised when I rounded the corner
Of the house
First by petals on the ground
Then I saw

Rejoicing and blossoming all over
Rejoicing and blossoming
Like a shopping spree of pink
You are always faithful!

Thank you, God, for your not-so-subtle messengers of Spring.  Help me to not be so impatient for the warm weather, flowers, and green.  It's coming.  I know.  You are always faithful.  


  1. Hi Janet! I am still waiting for Spring here. Ugh. Still cold, rainy..a few snowflakes. Your photo is like a pop of color on a gray day. Thank you! And I'm glad you found some surprise color...a gift for you from the Lord.

    Happy Friday!

    1. Hi Ceil, I am so glad you could visit! Spring is coming - soon we'll ALL be looking at flowers, and leaves, and green fields. It was a perfect gift - and still is! Happy Monday!


I know we probably haven't met in person, but I believe that the sharing of our ideas and thoughts, sometimes our hearts and souls, makes us more than strangers. I would like to say friends. Thank you for taking the time to contribute to my little space - I appreciate you.
