Spring Draws Near

Sun rays stream through windows
Suggesting spring draws near
Yet chilling winter winds
Still sweep

Soon there’ll be no doubt about it
As buds on trees appear
And early sun awakens dawn
From sleep

Daniel 2:19-21 – The Bible – Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning…

    I’m really looking forward to spring. So much snow here in Nova Scotia this winter. Your blossom picture looks very inviting right now. 🙂


    • Thank you for stopping by, Laura. I’m yearning for spring, too. It’s not as cold here as in Nova Scotia, but this year has been colder than most. Texas doesn’t get much snow, but this year we got more than usual and more cold. Blessings to you…

      Ditto on looking forward to spring. I can’t imagine living as far north as you do! I’ve heard it is beautiful up there, though.


      • I live in Texas. 🙂 Laura lives in Nova Scotia. She’s the author of a book entitled Bitter, Sweet. I’ve read it and it’s great. Nova Scotia is way up north. I’m sure it’s very cold there in winter. I have been in Texas less than two years. I spent fifteen years in Florida where it’s really warm. I will be very glad for spring.

        Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. Blessings to you, Patti…

    Beautiful words, as usual, Carol. We have rain this evening. Am I being too optimistic to think we are getting our April showers early? 🙂


    • Spring is very near. It must be! I am longing for it more than usual, and you know how we always look forward to spring. Your blog is lovely and inspiring. Blessings to you, Patti…

    Springtime is beautiful, especially when frostbitten plants shed the brown leaves for new growth. I’m just not looking forward to the months of triple-digit heat that follow spring…


    • Yes, Janna. Spring is beautiful, probably everywhere, but for many of us it means the triple digit hot weather comes next. Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. May our spring be beautiful and our summer pleasant, too. Blessings to you, Janna…


  5. Spring? What’s that? I must have forgotten…


    • Me, too. Ha! Vaguely I remember that it’s the cat’s meow and I want to see it now. 🙂 Like this winter, it could bring some of us excesses we don’t want. I pray not. The weather has not seemed like our friend. I hope that the deep freeze killed off lots of viruses, or something else good for us. Thank you for stopping and for your comment. Blessings to you, Zoe…

    Beautiful words and reminder that God who is in control of everything will bring Spring in his perfect timing.


    • Thank you for your sweet and insightful comment. The Bible verse says it: “He changes times and seasons…”. God is in control and He has a plan for our hope and our future. I am waiting and anticipating those blossoms to break out singing songs of praise toward heaven soon. Blessings to you, Jeanne…

    That’s a beautiful bit of poetry there.
    And the photo, nice i like the way the edges blur at the flowers towards the back


  8. I think I’m enjoying our weather right not. Clean clear air. Spring will be lovely. Summer heat … not so great.

    Love poem and quote, Carol Ann. Is the photo yours? Very pretty. Cheerful.

    Thanks for a fine post.


  9. Lovely reminder that Spring is near. It’s my favorite season, and I’m looking forward to getting outside in my garden soon.

    amen my dear sweet friend, hope the spring soon reaches your end of world.


    • Spring is coming. I can’t wait to sit on the bench outside in the early morning again. I’ve stayed inside since the cold came. I’m hoping by next week to begin my morning pleasure. Blessings to you, Trisha…
