signs of spring

See! The winter is past...
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:11 & 12

With the tragedy occurring relentlessly in Japan and throughout the world, it seems silly for me to continue with my scheduled post. So, instead, here's a sign of hopefulness in the form of a winter blossom that I look forward to every year. Our yard never looks as promising as it does when this plum tree blossoms and reminds me that Spring and the newness that she brings are right around the corner.

I encourage all of us to keep those that are struggling for the necessities and for healing in our prayers and to find ways to help when we can. This is a great site that directs you to honorable charities that will be conscientious with your money.
