When all is stripped away- beauty fades
Yet death can’t hide the wonder of rebirth
We wander and the bloom tells a slow motion truth
dropping with the weight of a hammer on the restless dull heart
Life with color is all around
The Creator wills barren earth to life again
Spring is upon us and the writer of the Song of Songs pens love in this way:
…My lover is already on his way to his garden, to browse among the flowers, touching the colors and forms. I am my lover’s and my lover is mine. He caresses the sweet-smelling flowers. (Song of Solomon 6:2,3)
LOVE IS reborn each Spring and quite colorful.
When Jared and I went through a major loss of our wealth and belongings I had to find joy in things I couldn’t loose. The house, the belongings, the comforts were gone. I found comfort in Spring especially that year as I photographed the journey of flowers crossing my path. Below I share some of the best ones with you. And I want to remind you that even though the mountains be removed God will not remove His love from you. And no one can take the glory of Spring from you. If you are in a season of winter, of loss or of death there is hope. God’s creation fills the hillsides and gardens with loads of color and when it catches your eye, know this: love will bloom again.
Will you join me on this adventure of photographing the colors of Spring?
