Springtime in Upstate New York

The post below is shared by my mother, Donna Jean.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21: 4&5

Springtime in upstate New York is lovely; fragrant lilacs, beautiful forget-me-nots, tulips and more. I wish I could bottle the scent of our mountain ash tree; it is so sweet and lovely. In my mind I can imagine heaven a perpetual springtime and its atmosphere filled with the wonderful essence of springtime always. Thank you Father for new life in Christ Jesus.  2 Corinthians 5:17

Spring Flowers

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Matthew 6:28&29
"The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness."
                                                   -Terese of Lisieux

                                        "Her heart is like her garden
                                         Old-fashioned, quaint and sweet.
                                         With here a wealth of blossoms,
                                          And there a still retreat."
