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


  1. Hi Sarah - and Donna Jean!
    I love these pretty pictures of your forget-me-nots and Ash tree.
    It looks so lovely and peaceful there and the picket fence really says "home" to me.
    While you enjoy your Springtime, I wait for mine to arrive in a few months from now.
    My forget-me-nots will appear again and all the loveliness of the season will be seen.
    In the meantime..I thank the Lord that I can rejoice with you for the beauty of His creation.
    Truly a foretaste of Heaven :-)

  2. Happy Spring! Oh the photos are just lovely!
