Springtime

The scent of springtime fills the air And fragrance greets us everywhere; The grass is green, no longer brown, The snow submerged into the ground. Where just a few short weeks ago Naught but bare limbs a tree would show, New buds of green spring forth—and they Enlarge—become a green array. Where flow’rs were planted, […]

Spring

As time marches on I’ve found that I have a growing affection for the Spring season. When I was growing up I always thought that Fall was the best time of year, but that was most likely due to my birthday being in October. As a kid, just growing another year older (and getting a […]

Spring

This month, we are reminded once again of God’s covenant faithfulness to us, his people, in the changing of the seasons. For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, this year the first day of Spring will be March 21st. Genesis 8:22 records God’s covenant promise to Noah regarding the seasons. “While the earth […]

Springtime Window

The bitter cold hard wind whipped snow like mountain ranges piled high along the fences squeaked and cracked in shards beneath my feet.   There, amid the peaks and hollows etched by wind born flecks of snow I came upon a roundish hole that disappeared below ‘mid feathery flakes of frost like lace adorned the […]

The Winter is Past

The frozen turf is softened by the sun  And gentle rains descend; A lighter, warmer breeze has now begun To signal winter’s end. The snowdrop and the crocus start to poke Green sprouts above the earth; The fine mist vanishes like wispy smoke— The world speaks of rebirth. I praise the Lord for beauty of […]

A Springtime Story

The air smelled fresh and new, the way it does only on the first warm days of early spring. The grass was starting to turn green, and the leaves were beginning to pop out on the tree in our yard. In the flower bed I could see some thick green points poking up through the […]

The Season of Spring

The barrier of winter has lifted, As April silences have been awakened, In earnest, nature awaits this new season, Portraying a still quality, God has given.   Flowers of ardent growth and passion. Daintily increase their natural beauty, Showing the similitude of a painted picture, The blossoms sprout in an elegant way.   The mighty […]

The Spring of Redemption

The rain dropped lightly into the await­ing puddles pleating them with care and promise. Thaddeus sat quietly on her worn rocker watching with patient hope. Her worn eyes alighted with rejuvenated sparkle on the blurred outline of trees. Spring arriving. The rain was not only to be tolerated but hoped for; the earth would be […]

Spring

The boisterous wind picks up the falling raindrops and flings them clattering against the window pane. All day long heavy skies drop their moisture while icy winds spend their fury in sweeping gusts. Long, naked arms of ice-coated trees bend clumsily be­fore the savage onslaught of the storm. Night closes in swiftly today, changing the […]

Psalter No. 287:1   The lines quoted above are a versification of the 30th and 31st verses of the 104th Psalm: “Thou sendest forth […]

March – Creation Awakes

When the apostle Paul preached the true God to the idol worshipping Romans of old, he stood upon a prominence known as Mars Hill, named after the Roman god of war, from which our current month also derives its name. To the Romans, Mars was more than a mere fighter; they regarded him as a […]

Springtime

The cool and balmy breezes blow And disappeared is winter’s snow, The merry birds upon the wing, Are singing sweetly—“It is Spring!” Forgotten is the winter’s toil And crocus buds peep thru the soil, The roses speak, the lilies bloom, Sending cut their sweet perfume.   God speaks among these beauties rare And they are […]

The Underground Movement

Marvels of Spring will never cease to awe and thrill mankind. The seeming “death” of plant and animal life is but a mere dormancy, for the potential being remains and that “breath of life” will never completely cease until time itself will end. The warmth of the sunshine, the re­freshment of the rain, the balm […]

Welcome Springtime

“If spring came but once in a century instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake, and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all hearts to behold the miraculous change!  But now the silent succession suggests nothing but necessity.  To most men only the […]

My God in Spring or War

It’s hard to conceive of a war being fought, When I look at the grass and the trees: Its spring, with her beauty too dear to be bought, That surrounds me with light, gentle breeze. All creation is moving about me with life: The birds, like always, sing praise to our King. I hear croaking […]
