Leaves are appearing on trees & flowers are blooming

One Nice Day

It's been a cold, wet, miserable spring so far. I can count on one hand the number of really nice days we've had this month.

On Saturday, we got a bit of relief when it was sunny and warm.

This flowering tree stood out among the bare ones. Apparently it didn't get the memo that spring hasn't really come yet.

And for that, I'm thankful!

He is Risen!

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD
my soul shall exult in my God
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness
Isaiah 61:10

Good Friday

...Christ Jesus
who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:5-11

Spring Has Sprung...at Macy's

The calendar may say April, but the weather hasn't yet received the memo that it's spring!

In desperate need of color & flowers on this dreary day, I went to Macy's for their annual Spring Flower Show

It's a fragrant haven of tulips, hydrangeas & hyacinths

There are flowers among the jewelry displays...

mingling with the makeup counters...

atop the displays...

mixed in with the purses...

there are even trees in the aisles

Some views from above

Hopefully soon, I won't have to go inside to find the flowers!
