The Promise of Spring

Every day in Northwest Tennessee we are seeing gradual signs that Spring is on its way.

“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ~Rachel Carson

Morning glories

I like to go walking in the morning when the morning glories are in full bloom.  They are one of the little wildflowers that always seem to make my heart feel glad.

“Love the simple joys of life that put a smile upon your face, a light in your eyes and happiness in your heart.”  ~Unknown

Clothed in white

White is not a mere absence of color; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black.  God paints in many colors; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.  ~G. K. Chesterton
