Welcome Spring!

March 21st, 2007

I almost forgot that yesterday was the first day of Spring.  I usually think of March 21st… but technically the Vernal Equinox took place on March 20th this year… the day that the sun is positioned above the equator, with almost equal day and night around the world.  We’ve been busy cleaning up outside, and preparing the plants and beds for the growing season.  Too much to write about, but we still enjoy the early sunrise as well as getting outside more to play.  Last week we planted two young apple trees, and this week two more.  I’ll write more on them as they leaf out this year… hopefully someday we’ll have home-grown apples!   There is much to do…

The Young One helped out by digging his own hole for HIS apple tree!  He needed a break and asked if he could borrow my hat.

The morning sun is now further to the northeast… bringing light to the sky and fields.

The forest begins to awake with the morning sun… the birds are singing and a new day has begun.

Every Sunrise

February 18th, 2007

Every sunrise is a present,
A gift from God above,
Gift-wrapped with scarlet ribbons,
Tied with bows of love.

Each day’s a new beginning,
A time to start anew,
While all the stars are sleeping,
The rose is fresh with dew.

Each day’s a new creation,
Too lovely to ignore,
We may find a blessing,
Just outside our door.

We cannot keep the past,
Like fireflies in a jar;
Nor journey to the future,
By wishing on a star.

Every sunrise is a blessing,
A gift for just today,
Rejoice my friend,
Embrace it before it fades away!
