Springtime Blossoms


 Flowering Crab Blossoms - after the rain



The grandkids (and their parents) are here for the weekend until Sunday, at which time we will be going to our granddaughter's confirmation.  I wanted to take a minute to post this photo I took today. The flowering crab was gorgeous a couple days ago, laden with pink-purple blossoms. Then we got rain, lots of rain. Now the petals are on the ground. But look how beautiful they are, even on the ground among the hostas in the pond garden!

How gracious of God to give us all this beauty to enjoy. At my friends' Bible study the other day we were discussing how God could have chosen to put us on an asphalt planet or withheld beauty from us. But instead, look at all the color, shape, texture, scent, variety! He gave us so much beauty, so much for which to thank Him, so much to cause us to wonder and delight in Him. So much to make us want to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever!

Yes, God has blessed us with such beauty but I do believe that our planet is rock and asphalt is man made. Have a wonderful time with your family.

Your purple snow is very pretty! Here it's pink snow from all the flowering plums and cherries. An asphalted earth would be boringly scary!
