From Winter to Springtime
From winter to springtime, what a difference a few months can make! It has been months since we’ve had any color on our trees or in our gardens.
“That is one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.” ~L.M. Montgomery
Winter brings much needed dormancy to our trees. During winter, the tree roots go deep, preparing for blooming canopies in spring, and enlarged canopies for summer fruit bearing.
Winter brings much needed rest for our gardens. The vegetable gardens can compost and replenish their minerals in preparation for a bountiful harvest the following summer. The roses send their roots deeper to assemble bountiful rose blooms from spring through fall. The flower beds ready their banquet table for a profusion of blooms arranged exquisitely to entice the eyes with beauty and the nose with fragrance.
“Everything is new in the spring. Springs themselves are always so new, too. No spring is ever just like any other spring. It always has something of its own to be its own peculiar sweetness.” ~L.M. Montgomery
We also need winter’s rest to refresh our spirit and restore our soul. Spring’s fresh breeze, budding trees and blooming flowers awaken us to the Lord’s Presence, mercy and love.
“Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” ~Psalm 90:14 WEB
