The Blessings of Mother Earth
"For Everything There Is a Season..."
As I walk each morning, I have come to appreciate the beauty the Creator surrounds us in. Watching the changes of the seasons over the past few weeks, gives new understanding of how amazing Mother Earth is. A short time, two months to be exact, life here looked dismal. Today, it is vibrant with growth, and birdsong. We have so much to be grateful for in this life!
