Monday Moment 11

"...As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease." (Genesis 8:22) (NRSV)

The winter from which we are emerging has been long and brutal, seemingly without end. In the Denver Metro area where I now live, yesterday was ruled over by a snowstorm, in April, on Palm Sunday. But this morning, the sun is shining brightly, and has swept away all before it in demonstration of Spring's slow triumph.

These are the first little flowers to show their faces in my sleeping flower garden. I planted these bulbs last fall, and had forgotten all about them till they poked their little heads out of the dirt. It is a nice surprise, especially since they are of my two favorite colors!
