Friday Pretties

Snow melting.  Sunshine.  A hint of Spring in the damp cold.  This is my Friday Pretty.  Slender green shoots straining out of the earth through the dead leaves of last fall.  A message from God today that there is always something going on even when we can't see it.  After a long winter, after a long season, He is still at work growing something good outdoors, as well as, inside us.  I was reminded of this verse:

"As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease."
Genesis 8:22

The forecast predicts more snow, but I will hold on to what is coming and marvel at what is going on under it all.  Blessings!
