Our First Flowers of 2018

See the source image

It’s quite cold here this morning, and we have a snowstorm heading our way, according to the weather forecast. But today we have flowers–little white snowdrops, a tidy little crop of them, out on the front lawn. And next to our door, Patty’s hellebore has just pushed up its first shoots.

This is God’s stuff. This is His way of telling us, “God is nigh.” Telling us we’re not alone, He’s still here watching over us: nature carries on according to His plan.

We ought to love the Father’s handiwork. When He made the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them, He pronounced it very good: as indeed it is.

  1. There’s something amazing about a flower surviving in the cold. God’s stuff works, and in m any cases, we don’t even understand how it works, but it does.

    1. Sure, but it’s still awfully cute. – and it appears he really does move it to the 5! 🙂

  2. Our pansy bed does well all winter – such hardy flowers. I often wonder why woozie type people are called “pansies?” Our bulbs are already above ground. Our weather has been so pleasant of late (71* for tomorrow) it seems Old Man Winter is on his way out and here comes Spring!!
