The Coming of Spring

Slowly but surely Springtime is coming ~  we've had a very cold, unusual winter for Mississippi!  And I know that other parts of the country have experienced record breaking cold and snowfall ~ so just what did happen to all that global warming "theory"? 

Spring is one of my 4 favorite seasons!  With Summer, Fall, & Winter following in that order!  Seasons & planting & harvest are all discussed in the Bible ~ scriptures quoted are from the New King James translation.

Genesis 1:11
The God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose see is in itself on the earth." and it was so.

Genesis 8:22
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.

Song of Solomon 11-13 (or Song of Songs ~ depending on your translation)
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.  The flowers appear on the earth.  The time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.  The gif tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!

Isaiah 61:11
For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Here are some signs of spring from my yard today ~

Winter isn't over yet ~ but our peach tree didn't get that memo!

our new planter on the left ~ it was our pool box that we replaced this weekend

same bush ~ white with hot pink stripe flower

Its supposed to get colder later on this week ~ hope it doesn't kill all the peach blossoms!  Our .02 tulip bulbs from last year are emerging too~hopefully they will be just as gorgeous as they were last year!

Happy almost springtime!

Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
