Happy Spring...



Happy Spring to all of you!

Spring is a very busy time of year, isn't it?

There are lots to do in the yard
 and lots to do in the house.

And boy howdy...we have lots to do... (Smiles)

We have been cleaning up the yard 
and pulling out our Spring decor.
My hubby and father in law and some
 friends have come to help 
us get new shingles on our roofs.
The warmth is here, but only for a little while.

The saying above is so true...
You freeze in the shade but stay warm in the sun.
I go from warm to cold while being outside.

But I so enjoy soaking up the heat of the sun.

What plans do you have for Spring?

God's Grace Overflows

I love poems and I thought I would share one with you today.

Enjoy your week friends!



All Nature Proclaims Eternal Life
By: Helen Steiner Rice

Flowers sleeping 'neath the snow,
Awakening when the spring winds blow,
Leafless trees so bare before
Gowned in lacy green once more,
Hard, unyielding, frozen sod
Now softly carpeted by God,
Still streams melting in the spring
Rippling over rocks that sing,
Barren, windswept, lonely hills
Turning gold with daffodils-
These miracles are all around
Within our sight and touch and sound,
As true and wonderful today
As when the stone was rolled away,
Proclaiming to all doubting men
That in God all things live again! 

God's Grace Overflows

Hugs & Blessings,

Spring makes my happy, happy, happy! It is my favorite time of the year. I love how everything is coming to life and looks new and fresh. I agree it is a busy time. After being cooped up in the house for so long I am ready to be outside.

I giggled at the top quote. It is certainly true. Thankful you have help for roofing. Hubby calls that a knee killing job!

A lovely post today Amy! I chuckled at your spring quote... spring in the sun, winter in the shade, oh yes, so very true here too! I hope the nice weather holds up until your roofing can get done, how wonderful that friends and family are pitching in to make it happen! Helen Steiner Rice wrote the most beautiful poetry, and I really enjoyed this poem today! It was nice to see the flowers blooming at the bank, it is warmer in town than here on the mountains. It will be a while yet before I see any blooms here, but that is the joy of spring - the anticipation :) Have a blessed and wonderful week Amy!!!

That quote couldn't be any more truthful and we are experiencing a day just like that today! I love the poem too! Happy Spring, Amy! :)

Hello, What a true saying, it is a bit like hot flashes LOL
Yes, work and work some more, but we must always make time to rest and enjoy the fruit of our labor! I love hearing the Meadow Larks singing. But the spring winds are a bit much!
Love, Roxy

Hi Amy! Happy Spring to you! I'm glad you're getting your new shingles on the roof, gotta keep those Spring Showers from coming inside to greet you face to face!
My yard is just a mess. I have to pull out all the old, dead flowers, cut back the roses and the bushes, rake the blown leaves...yikes! It'll take me quite a while to do, but it's fun too.
We had a good Easter celebration. My brother and his family, along with my Dad came to have dinner. It rained, but we were inside anyway! My jonquils are up, but not flowering just yet. Spring is still a bit sleepy, but it's coming!
Easter blessings to you :)
