PRAYING FOR JAPAN...
Counting Every Blessing!



The Beauty of Spring...

For behold, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers have already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.
The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.
Song of Solomon 2:11-13 
Song of Solomon is a beautiful book in the Bible
celebrating love and the beauty of all God's creation!
































What's blooming your way?  Love your comments...

Blessings,

  29. Hi Cindy...

    Ohhh my...what fabulous photos, my friend! I was thinking as I was looking through them...what beautiful prints of greeting cards that they would make! You are a very talented photographer!!! Well dear lady, Spring looks especially beautiful at your place...such lovely flowers! I loved the verse from the Song of Solomon! I don't know how many times that I have read that particular verse and not equated it to Spring! God's Word is truly a "living" word! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely post with us for the Sunday Favorites party today...this was such a treat!

    I am praying for Japan!

    Happy spring wishes,
