We have a small spring behind the house.
When we bought the house a little over five years ago, it was described to us as a "frog pond."
But it is a natural spring.
And it's just a short walk from our back porch.
Many mornings I enjoy getting outside early in order to get some pictures while the light is good.
I enjoy taking pictures at dawn and dusk, it's about the light a lot of times for me.
The spring is all dried up right now as we've been experiencing drought-like conditions here.
But the rains will come soon, as they always do, and provide the much needed water.
There Will Be Showers of Blessings
The rains will come and warmer weather.
Dragonflies and butterflies will return!
The flowers will bloom once again!
Oh! Happy Faces, I long for you!
The cicadas, clothed in humble dull cases, will crawl from the earth.
And then they'll emerge anew, winged, to fly from bough to bough chorusing from the tree-tops!
I'm yearning for Spring and all her promises...I'm looking ahead.
Spring is also about new beginnings.
Our family is about to begin a new journey with the guidance of our Lord.
He is faithful, He is trustworthy,...I'm looking ahead!
