Joy comes in the morning

There's no better way to say it, I LOVE SPRING! I love seeing flowers pushing up through the ground and the trees in full bloom. Winter left kicking and screaming and in her wake we have had amazing weather and all that brings with it. My front yard only gets morning sun, and although the cold weather hangs out a little longer in this part of the country, my flowers are one of the last to bloom (I just think of it as a way to prolong the celebration of spring.)

One of my favorite spring flowers are hyacinths because they are just so fragrant. These are just outside my front door and I could sit on my front steps and smell them all day long. Playing in my garden is therapeutic for me, and I hope to have many pictures to come.

This month has been one of highs and lows for us. Hubby is still home (I'm not complaining although I understand his desire to finish his work and we're still waiting on final answers) and the kids are healthy and growing like weeds. I finally finished my on-line course, and although it was a bit stressful towards the end, I did well and feel all the better for having taken it. My grey cells have been exercised and I have some new found knowledge I will apply in the future. We've had some trials that I will one day share but at this time I'm still processing, but through all of this I can say that God has been and is faithful. He's given us the strength we've needed for the giants we've faced, and while we don't understand all the whys I'm going to trust the Master Gardener's plans.

That was an encouraging post, Sarah. I hope that your garden outside and your "life" garden are equally beautiful after the growing season! BTW...I think I am submitting a story for the author. That overwhelmed me a little bit! :)
