Spring has sprung. The grass is riz. I wonder where the birdies is.

O lovely lovely spring. The fresh air, the daffodils, the open windows, the smell of outside on my clothes, working in mom's garden. It almost makes me squeal just writing about it! Downtown Anderson is so pretty this time of year, and at christmas and thanksgiving and all the times inbetween, but right now spring is tops! O and FYI ya'll! I heard the first crickets chirping last night. I think I will officially sleep with my window open! Everybody look out, I'm doin my happy dance!!! love to all. carmie

I love spring. I love daffodils. And I love all things tiny. Amazingly...I found little, baby daffodils in my yard. And I truely believe that they are a gift from God. I saw the first one when I was having a really hard day and it made me feel loved and happy. It's amazing how God takes care of us that way.

o the lovely days of being a little girl. sometimes i wish i could go back even for a few hours. :) on Saturday i had the opportunity to take those little girls pictures. i had a lovely time holly b! your the sweetest! :) a quote i found reminded me of holly beth. it went like this:

A little girl can be sweeter ( and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. She can jitter around and stomp and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on it's head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot. alan beck

Hope. In my mind, spring is a vision of hope. Right now, hope for me is very similar to those tiny, little crocus flowers. Tiny. But still fighting to stay alive. Now matter what happens, hope keeps right on blooming in my heart. It keeps straining towards the sunlight. And then, at the very last second, a cloud breaks and the sun beats down on me and hope is more alive then ever before.

How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.

George MacDonald

"The LORD shall fight for you, you need only to be still."

Spring is coming. . . I think. :) I'd like to think this anyway. Then again cardinals aren't necessarily spring birds but you never know. It seems like every time I step outside right now though the birds are singing more which does mean something. Last
night mom and shelle and I went on walk outside and found all kinds of new flower shoots coming up so it's at least right around the corner. :)

Ah, spring. Yes, it's right around the corner here in the South and I couldn't be more thrilled. I used to think that summer was my favorite season, but since moving down here, spring has quickly stolen my heart. All the new growth just screams new beginnings. And the beautiful flowers very sweetly point to God. I just love spring!
