I went looking for spring yesterday.

This is what I found.

Forsythia starting to flower...

Daffodils and blue squill blooming

Virginia blue bells showing color...

someone singing a sweet tune

and lastly two friends basking in warm sunshine.

May each of you find some spring today.

God Bless

April is here!

Page from Sketchbook

Yes friends April is here!

It brought us a special gift the day after Easter.

We awoke to a lovely snowfall.

Every shrub and limb was covered.

By noon it was beginning to melt and at
4:00 P.M.  it was gone.  It was as if
it had never happened.

So yes April has arrived - she may be teasing us but she is here!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.   BTW - this post is early - we are celebrating my Mom's birthday tomorrow.  She will be 80.

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  
Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."  Prov. 31:30-31 (NIV)

Lovely Day

It was a lovely day.   In spite of the cold wind these pussy willows bravely reached upward...

the moon peeked out in the afternoon

and the bright sunshine cast our shadows.

Hope everyone enjoyed a lovely day.    Have a blessed Holy Week!

"While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."    Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying "Drink from it, all of you.   This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."   Matt. 26: 26-28 (NIV)

Blue skies promise hope.  They lift our spirits and whisper the promise of better days ahead.

Patches of winter may linger but spring is just around the corner.

These little sweeties know it...

so does the crocus...

and snowdrop!

Take heart friends - spring is certainly on its way. 

Keep "looking up" hope will not disappoint!

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."   Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

p.s.  Thank you all your thoughts and prayers while my mother was in the hospital.   She is home and getting stronger each day.  You are all such a blessing to me.   May the God of  all hope fill each of your hearts with joy this coming week.

Dear Friends I will be missing in action for a mom is having surgery on Monday.
Praying she will be well soon.

It may be a while before I visit you.    God willing it will not be too long.

Take care and have a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie

Work in Progress

Are we not all a work in progress?  I know I am.

In fact with each passing year there seems to be more progress needed to just remain the same...stronger glasses to read the fine print...extended exercise time to keep one's shape...a healthier diet for various changes that come with age.

This past Friday my dear Mom had to undergo  a rather routine procedure...angioplasty and stents.  She went in one day and returned home the next.  (BTW- she is doing well).

Modern medicine has certainly made great strides in amazing ways.  What would have been a long recovery from open heart surgery in years past is now an overnight stay.  Who knows in time what "new" miraculous techniques will be found to cure or simplify other health issues. 

Often as we get older we struggle against change and progress.   We think the past ways were better and perhaps in some areas that may be true.   Today though I am grateful for those who continue to press on to improve life and keep us all being "works in progress". 

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.   I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."   Psalm 139: 13-14 (NIV).

May each of you have a lovely week.

Hugs Debbie
