Three on Thursday – Signs of Spring


First Signs of Spring at Cozy Acres
along the garden path.

First to be seen along my pathway are the white violets.

  Then these precious bells appear.

Last, but not least,
(really not even the last blooms that reappear)
are the purple violets.
These will continue to bloom long after the white violets and bells are gone.

Just one more, please
The spring bulbs need separating,
but I love them bright and compact.
The little bells grow in a row to the right of this picture.

Linking with Carole for Three on Thursday .

A Happy Life

Isaiah 26:3-4
You will guard him and keep him
in perfect and constant peace whose mind
[both its inclination and its character]
is stayed on You,
because he commits himself to You,
leans on You,
and hopes confidently in You.
So trust in the Lord
(commit yourself to Him,
lean on Him,
hope confidently in Him) forever;
for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock
[the Rock of Ages].
Amplified Bible

A happy life is not built up of tours abroad and pleasant holidays,
but of little clumps of voilets noticed by the roadside,
hidden away almost so that only those can see them
who have God’s peace and love in their hearts;
in one long continuous chain of little joys,
little whispers from the spiritual world,
little gleams of sunshine on our daily walk.
