The sun's warmth and the angle of its rays are welcome after winter's icy hold.
The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for pruning the vines, And the voice of the turtledove has been heard... Song of Solomon 2:12
The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young…Psalm 84:3

For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth;
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11
and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; Psalm 104:14
So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth. Hosea 6:3

In you He will cause new growth to spring forth and grow deep.
Holy, Holy, Holy, LORD. Great is your faithfulness and deep is your love. Wide are your outstretched arms to all who will come. You are the Creator of life and the author of seasons. How great is your faithfulness over us.
Spring has come (Sigh) and it is good,
What is your favorite sign of spring? (Click to Tweet)
How does the emergence of spring speak to you?
Here in New England we still have winter temperatures overnight as spring wrestles to take hold....we barely broke 40 degrees today. Tell me about your end-of-April weather.
