Expectancy

The soft, sweet summer was warm and glowing;
Bright were the blooms on every bough.
I trusted Him when the roses were blooming;

I'll trust Him now . . .

~From "The Song of a Bird in a Winter Storm"~

For sure, we learned anew that God on the mountain tops is still God in the valleys!! He certainly walked through our deep valley with us!!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

I'm waiting for that first sign of green and bud on my roses. It's such a lovely reminder of renewal and God's blessings.
Those are beautiful roses in your photo.

Glenda,
I really needed to read your post today. I am trusing and leaning on Him for some decisions in our family. Please lift up a prayer for me...I need some direction from above right now. Carla

I'm loving your taste of spring photos. They are lovely!
We have some things peeking up through the ground, but nothing in bloom yet. Can't wait!

How wonderful to see that growth on your rose bush. I'm looking forward to the day mine too starts to seen forth some new shoots. That is the miracle of Springtime.

What a neat poem. Our roses are also showing signs of growth. Now all we have to do is keep Old Man Winter from making another visit.
Thank you for the birthday wishes.

Once again a lovely analogy in pictures! We have some snow drop flowers in the back yard - and I'm hoping the snow doesn't drop on them later this month, after the spring-like day today.
