My Reasons For The
Season of Spring

One of the first signs of Spring is the celebration of Easter and the resurrection of Christ. Also all the beautiful decorated baskets with an array of colored eggs in them after the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Spring is the time of year when I get anxious to see the beautiful flowers in the gardens and along the sidewalks and river banks with all their blooms of color.

Spring is the time we start seeing the fruit trees and bushes burst out in beautiful blossoms.

I love it when the grass gets green in the Spring and one of my favorite smells comes after it is mown.

I love windsocks with beautiful Spring time designs on them and blowing in the wind to and fro’.

And what would Spring be without the pretty ladybugs whether they are real or made out of rocks.

I love all the beautiful birds when they appear in the Spring. I get such a sense of peace when I hear their sweet songs.

And last but not least, Spring is the time of every year that I pull my thoughts and memories together and think of my dear sweet Dad who left us on a beautiful Sunday morning, April 15, 2007,….. when he walked towards his Heavenly Father and his eternal home where it will forever be Spring.

These are some of my reasons
for the season of Spring


  1. I'M FREE

    Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
    I'm following the path God laid for me,
    I took his hand when I heard him call
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way
    I found that peace at the close of the day.
    If my parting has left a void
    Then fill it with the remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life's been full, I savored much;
    Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
    Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me
    God wanted me now, He set me free.
