Another cold April came and went, and Southern Lower Michigan was wondering when spring would arrive. Well, it said hello this week, and did it in all its glory! And I was like the woman in the photo at the right, drinking in the sun and warm air.
Strange, however, that even in cold weather and the threat of frost, the trees and early flowers phenomenally know when it’s time to wake up and come alive. Since the end of March they have shown signs of rubbing the crusty sleep from their eyes, but not until this week did they wake up.
Here is an example of waking up. Less than a week ago I saw tiny buds on this tree — hundreds of them — and I knew one day there would be a burst of blooms. And yesterday, I walked passed the open front door and glanced out to see this sight….white buds like a cloud burst of fluff.
I took these two photos with my cell phone camera, instead of getting out my digital camera. But I believe the beauty still shows up.
I am not sure if this tree is a Dwarf Cherry Tree, or something different. It was here when my husband and I bought this place seven years ago. It produces berries and the robins come by the hundreds to eat, as they migrate south for the winter. Right now the garden below the tree is yet to come forth, but it’s there!
I mentioned to one of my blog followers that spring reminds me of the resurrection. Coming forth. One day soon Christ will appear and call His people home.
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17.
Amen. Come quickly Lord Jesus!
A love story that points the reader to a God Who loves us, even when we fail to follow His plan.
