11 See! The winter is past;
   the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth;
   the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
   is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree forms its early fruit;
   the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. 
Song of Solomon 2:11-13 


I am continuing Sue Runyon's theme of Spring renewal.  We are seeing the buds of Spring flowers peeking through the soil.  Soon they will be opening.  Perhaps the crocus has bloomed in your area.  When we moved into our home back in 1976, we planted many bulbs; crocus, daffodil, tulips, hyacinth, azalea bushes, day lilies.  We still have some of those original flowers coming up but one year we had a landscaper dig up and turn over the soil along the front and I thought that would be the end of them but instead we are setting tons of crocus blooms, more than ever.

 Spring is a promise of renewal just as our Lord promises that when we receive and accept His Son we will be renewed, reborn.  I was reborn a number of years ago, but not until my heart and my insides were turned over and over, did I begin to flourish with our Lord's promise.

This was one of the most difficult winters that we have had in a very long time, but Spring renewal is here now and we will see the promises bloom with every new flower. When you see a new bud remember that after turmoil comes renewal. Let us rejoice!

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing to see all the beauty and delicate design our Creator has placed in every single flower! He's given us this beautiful world as a reminder that He loves us and has a special and wonderful plan for each of our lives as we yield to Him.

We are not as blessed as many of you... spring will still be a little away but this post brings the great anticipation of the wonder of spring.

Thanks for including my flowers!

Lovely post, Sue. Thank you for featuring my hanging flower vase along with the other beautiful listings. I love the Spring. Just beginning to see some of my flowers peeking through the ground.

Thank you for your wonderful post! No sign of flowers yet in our neck of the woods but we did have one teaser springlike day that was delightful. That deep breath of fresh air at the end of a very long winter feels so good and what it does to our spirits! He is truly awesome!! And what an artist!
Blessings,

I can never get enough of these beautiful flower items! I love this theme. We have crocuses flowering even with a little snow still around. What a magnificent gift from our Lord.

God knew what he was doing when He created the earth, the seasons, the flowers. All His glory reminds me of His never ending promise of continuing renewal when you believe in Him.

So beautiful! I have FINALLY seen the first crocuses up after a loooong unpleasant winter. God will always overcome, and what a wonderful reminder spring is to that promise.

Lovely paintings.

I hear alot these days about "seasons". The good thing is when we know what season we are in spiritually.

Whatever season it is, it's a time to praise God, and dance in the rain, sing in the sun, or shout in the snow.
