A Spring Break Offering

Spring 2012 009

Spring break has arrived, and it’s got me—like so many others who’ve endured a particularly extreme winter—standing by the window on tippy-toes waiting to welcome spring with shouts of relief and celebration. I guess that’s one good thing about the winter we’ve weathered. It makes spring days feel that much sweeter, right?

Since I’m taking a bit of a blogging break this Spring Break week, let me offer you a visual taste of spring to go with that longing you’re feeling in your hearts. May the photos below cause joy to rise up in your hearts and overflow into praise for our Creator as we anticipate spring’s welcome arrival together. Blessings to you all—and I’ll see you next week!

    Beautiful pictures, Cheryl. I’m looking forward to going camping and hiking this spring. God bless.

  2. You have the best camera, Cheryl, and a great eye! Spring … let’s see. I’m looking forward to the return of the blue heron and the scents of the blossoms on trees.

    • Thanks so much, Elaine! It’s been fun developing an eye for taking better photos. Just another example of how practice really makes a difference! :)
      So neat to think you’re looking forward to the return of the blue heron. I don’t know if I’ve ever even seen one. Enjoy!

  3. Enjoy a break!!! Beautiful spring photos….I can’t wait!!! I’m looking forward to warmer weather to be outside with the kids :)

    • Thanks, Emily! Our spring break started off cold but looks like it will warm up some as the week goes on. Hope you enjoy warmer days outside with your kids before long!

  4. Beautiful, Cheryl! God has certainly given you an eye and an ear for His beauty!

  5. I look forward to spring every year because I can’t wait to see what God has created fresh and new each year. It’s like a new beginning each year –

  6. Thanks for sharing the beauty, Cheryl. May your Spring Break refresh your spirit and nourish your soul.

    • Aww, thanks, Jana. Love how you spoke my tag line back to me! :) Spring Break is over now — and it went much to quickly, of course. Got to spend some time with our daughter and son-in-law in Little Rock. Love it when that happens!

  7. Oh what gorgeous tulips. I am so ready for the beautiful flowers that come with Spring!

    • Me, too, Alicia. This photo was taken a couple of springs back when we were visiting our kids in Little Rock. Can’t wait to see some of these around here this spring!
