Spring! Part 2


Celebrations, Growing stuff / Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Confession: God has been so good to us.

A year ago I was packing boxes, preparing for our first move of three in eight months. I was dreaming of living in The Gray House someday, but felt like Abraham beginning a journey-with-an-unknown-destination. I put a time capsule note on the bottom of one of the kitchen items I knew wouldn’t be unpacked in a temporary place, not till we reached our long home… God keeps His promises.

One year later, after grief and loss and growth and distress, we are here, celebrating our first spring Home.

apple blossoms

buds on our blueberry bushes
growing violets and baby toes
a brand new bleeding heart

forget-me-nots?
filthy and happy--vive le snot!

God keeps His promises.

  1. Beautiful pictures! God’s mercies are new every day, just like new life in the spring, even amidst our pain,struggles ,and discouraging times!! Great is His faithfulness! So glad for you to have such a beautiful, woodsy place!! Blessings on you!!

  2. I remember your begging to sneak to Skye House before we bought it and plant the tulip bulbs in hopes their flowerbed would become yours someday. I refused… I guess I lacked the faith! Then it was one of the first things you wanted to do after we had cleared the brush.

    Your hope in God’s promises inspires me.
