“Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed… Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.”
Henry David Thoreau

The calendar says that spring;s here, still snow lays on the ground.

The squirrels are very active now, they’re searching all around,

For things they buried long ago, it seems like years not days,

The fog still settles on the ground, creating morning haze,

Desiring much warmer weather, the river flows with ice,

The birds are singing their spring songs, it sounds so very nice,

The cold most tightly lingers on, the frost is in the air,

We long for the warmer climate, it doesn’t seem quite fair,

That the spring in Minnesota lasts only a few days,

We bounce from cold to melting down, we jump from ice to blaze,

But we, up here in the tundra, have learned how to adapt,

We’ll soon be wearing our flip flops with parkas and a hat.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    What a beautiful description of the Minnesota life. Here in SW MO we will have a Spring…but it seems to jump to 100% humidity too soon. When we were all complaining about the foot of snow and -25 temps I thought of all the complaining that will take place in July. I’ll hold on to the promise each season brings. Time will march on and the trees will go from bare to bud to bloom and I always wonder what weather phenomenon will occur; as it seems each year anymore brings some new one. God bless you my friend. I hope you have a peaceful and blessed day and weekend. 💚🤍❤

      We never know for sure what kind of weather we will have in Minnesota. Last night there were severe thunderstorms and even tornado warnings. This morning the grass is beginning to green up and the birds are singing like crazy. Sometimes I think it would be great to be a meteorologist. You get paid for being fifty percent right with each forecast.
