Spring is supposedly here, but Minnesota doesn’t realize that. We’re in the midst of another snow event today with expected snow fall of 7-10 inches. I am trying to remain positive and think happy spring thoughts. I know this won’t last forever!
ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
The dark days of winter have finally passed, a new day awakes with the sun,
The earth now gives way to the greening of grass, the squirrels are all on the run,
A robin is perched on a sweet budding branch, a cardinal sings beautiful tunes,
A newly tilled field lies awaiting a chance, to enjoy the sun’s long afternoons,
From dormant, dead soil, springs new life once again, sweet flowers explode in the rain,
The water from God benefits the terrain, and gives all that it needs to sustain,
The process of life, makes us blessed like the earth, with seasons of unending bliss,
The story begins at the time of our birth, there are days that we’d rather dismiss,
We cannot escape trouble, it’s part of the plan, to test and refine us each day,
To strengthen our growth in life’s tenuous span, to trust in our God as we pray,
No more will we lay in that backbreaking ground, a new life awaits in the end,
Upon our last day, we’ll inherit a crown, given by our sweet Jesus, our friend.
