See!  The winter is past;  the rains are over and gone.  Flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.           Song of Songs 2:11, 12

Have you heard it yet?  How I love the cooing of the doves in springtime.  They seem to be whispering peace, peace.  Quiet your racing heart and experience God’s wonderful peace.  The little Carolina wren that nests all winter long in a hanging basket of dead flowers outside my kitchen window, gets up before dawn and merrily starts singing, ‘It’s here, it’s here!’  And I rejoice in knowing it’s true.  Springtime has come once again.  Tornadoes have all given way to sunshine, birdsong and flowers.  I feel like singing too.  God is faithful and has renewed what appeared to be dead.  The grass and the woods are sprinkled with lovely flowers and I am filled with hope.

And then came the spring snow storm on March 5 2012.

The snow is gone, the temperature is in the high 60’s and Ladd has his tennis ball.  God is faithful and good.  The time for singing has come!  How Great Is Our God! Chairein!  That is Greek for, Joy to you!
