spring’s hope…

though not in evidence here as yet,
we’re experiencing the cleansing rains
 preceding spring’s
arrival of beauty…
Charles Dickens pretty much has it right for
where we are ~
 “It was one of those March days
when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ”

while we have assurance of hope
For, behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.

The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing [of birds] has come…
song of solomon 2.11-12
i’m anticipating spring
and your visit
with fresh changes to my sanctuary~
hoping you can visualize a bit with me ~
this was the table..
with some detail
that now has this finish
and shabby chic rose cushions…
what do you think?
would you like to stay for tea?
i have to say it’s really lightened and brightened
my space and i’m luving it…
yay spring!
and God’s amazing gift of hope!
lovely dishes to celebrate the new spring look~
and enjoy our party together!
choice reading
to inspire a party and inspirit spring within!
are you ready for some tea ?
how about this specialtea ?
