Flowering Trees in Springtime
The Season of Spring
The season of spring! Many of us look forward to this season all winter long. It signals the end of dreary and the beginning of bright! One of the prettiest sites we see in spring are the white flowering trees, but they're not alone. Ornamental trees bearing flowers of all colors start to appear early in spring signaling the new birth of trees followed by all the spring flowers.
Is it just nature's rebirth or can it be our rebirth too? We all celebrate New Year's with resolutions and look forward to changes but what about spring? When everything around us is being born again can it be a time for us to be born again, to start anew?
The flowering trees bring light and color into a darkened world
As they begin to open up and all their glory twirled
Around a background new again as we begin to see
A newborn opportunity to set our spirits free.

Flowering Trees in Spring
So, it's been a mild winter; low temperatures and little snow. Yet for me and my family it's been a long winter. Illnesses and issues have drawn it out and made it more bleak than usual. So, the other day I'm walking the dog (which I don't do as often as I should for his sake or mine) and I notice the beautiful flowering trees all around the neighborhood.
Have you really noticed the trees that bloom in spring? They bring such beautiful color, though for a short period of time. I kept stopping to look (and confusing the poor dog). I couldn't help taking a few pictures to help remind me of their beauty and the newness awaiting all of us as nature starts a new palette of color.
So I'm looking at the ornamental pear tree in my yard thinking, this was just totally bare a little more than a week ago. Buds began to appear and then it seems overnight, these beautiful little white flowers just popped out!
Springtime in Our Lives
As we continued our walk I noticed so many more. Other beautiful trees and forsythia bushes. What a glorious palette of color. If springtime is in the air, can't springtime be in our lives as well? Why not? Why can't we let the newness and freshness we find in the air seep into our hearts. Let springtime be our re-birth time!
The cold of winter has given way to the stirrings of spring and if we open our hearts that warmth can find its way in. I know my dog is feeling spring. He's got a little more spring in his step (pardon the pun) and a lot more energy. Nature takes care of its own, why not let it take care of us?
Webster says springtime is a flourishing stage of development....can it be that for us too? I'd really like to let springtime take over and guide me into summer with a song in my heart. I hope we can all find a newness this spring and start a summer filled with joy and color. Color to guide us and keep us happy throughout the year.
A time of more sun and more warmth from the sun. A time to get outside and start working in the garden and getting the garden ready. As we enjoy all of this why not enjoy it in our hearts? Clean out our hearts and start anew. Clean out the baggage in your heart, forgive those who need your forgiveness, and most importantly spread your love. Let your love be the basis for new growth in other's hearts. Make this the springtime of your life!

Though the blooms of these beautiful flowers may fade they will give way to leaves that provide shade from the summer sun. "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree." The seasons change and the trees offer different types of beauty and shelter. Let your heart open to the beauty and shelter God and nature can give you...especially in the springtime in your life.
