His Wonders Anew

 Last week's temperatures were wonderful! The sun was shining so bright and warm that the lilac bushes and the flowers in our yard began to open and show their beautiful colors.

When I was little and we lived out in the country, my mom had a lilac bush in our front yard. I loved that every spring it's purple flowers would burst open and let loose their beautiful fragrance. 

When we were looking at the house we now live in and the owners showed us the four lilac bushes that line one side of the property, I was excited!

We looked at the house in July and the purple flowers were no longer in bloom. I could not wait until the next spring when they would show their purple glory. Here we are in our second year of enjoying the wonderful colors of spring in our new home.

I do not have a green thumb so I am so thankful for the previous owners and for their green thumbs because they have left us with a wonderful array of flowers and trees that we enjoy every day.

Have you been able to experience the wonder of spring where you live? If so be sure to thank our Lord for his wonders anew each day.

"You opened my eyes to your wonders anew
You captured my heart with this love
Because nothing on earth is as beautiful as you."
Jeremy Camp "Beautiful One"

Love from the Preacher and I
