What a glorious day to celebrate this season of rebirth! I am overcome with the beauty of this season, and thankful for experiencing the masterpieces of God’s beauty each day. I am blessed with the opportunity to help out with our church’s flower ministry. In recent weeks I have enjoyed the simplicity of incorporating flowering trees and shrubs into my floral design which offer their own springtime rewards. From the fuschia hued branches of the Taiwan Cherry to the delicate, lace-like blooms of Spirea to the quintessential Azalea blooms of southern Alabama, spring has arrived in full force!

God may our eyes be opened and our ears unstopped,
That we may see in every sight a cathedral giving glory,
And hear in every sound angels singing alleluia.
May we be awed by the treasure of beauty in a rising moon,
And inspired by the clouded majesty of rainbow colours after rain,
May we look and see the wonder of daffodils lifting bright and shining faces to the sun,
May we look and see each plant, each creature, each handful of dirt,
God breathed, God inspired, God created.
May we behold the beauty and hear you saying it is very good
And walk together into the sanctuary of your creation – Sine
