See? The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth. Song of Solomon 2:11, 12a (NIV).
Silly little tulips, peeking from the ground.
Do they know something that I don't know?
Or do they stick their heads up just to look around
And see if there is yet a trace of snow?
Don't they know it's winter and spring is long away?
Old man Frost still has a trick or two.
But those silly little tulip heads look like they're here to stay.
I wonder, if it snows, what they will do?
Perhaps they all got lonesome, so long beneath the ground
And came up for a peek at God's blue sky.
Or, maybe they're a preview of springs lovely sound,
Silently pushing winters chill on by.
Father, I am blessed to witness the seasonal changes and the awakening of the earth as spring nears and the flowers are reborn. Thank You, Father, that our earthly home is renewed according to Your word. Amen.
