Spring is my favorite time of the year. The new growing season with fresh blooms of flowers long gone dormant or newly planted annuals that will delight for a single season are full of color in my heart as I plan for this years show from nature. Some plants serve only to offer beauty and others announce the coming fruit that will soon provide nourishment. And while I play a small part in arranging this masterpiece it is God who conducts the orchestra. God’s beauty predates my life and will continue long after I am gone. Meanwhile, for this brief time, I get to enjoy the handiwork of the creator who was and is and is to come.
