This was an especially rainy and dreary winter, lulling my creative juices to sleep. Spring awakens not only the earth, but my camera. These are images from one morning’s walk through my neighborhood.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. ~ Genesis 8:22
Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. ~ Acts 14:17
And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. ~ Genesis 1:12
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land ~ Song of Solomon 2:12 (see the nest above?)
Have you ever thought about what determines the difference between a flower and a flowering weed? I only found one mention of the word “weeds” in the Bible, and they were wrapped around Jonah’s head when he was in the belly of the whale, probably seaweed.
Take your camera on your next spring walk and see how much of God’s lovely spring creation you can capture!
