A spring of wonder

 By Jeannette Doran
 A spring of wonder

    April came with ice and snow
    Treasured moments of solitude
     Long awaited in a Minnesota
     Hermitage clothed in frost and white
      One last snow
      Deer searching for food
      By May seeds planted in soft soil
      Rain soaked fields
      Drenching downpour
      Leaves sparkle with showers 
      Behold the loveliness even
     In the midst of storm winds
     Puddles abound yet
     Red Poppies open as
    Sun shines on
    Velvet green grass
    Beauty surrounds us
   How awesome is our God

  1. You expressed your thoughts so beautifully, Sister Jeannette.

    I just read a quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder today where she marveled, "Why is the world so beautiful if not for us?"

    I feel closer to God in nature more than anywhere, for His handiwork is a wonder to behold, and His creativity astounds me.
