Greeting Spring!

We didn't have to wait for spring this year, as we usually do.  It came early!  We are amazed at how green everything is, at least a month ahead of usual.  We are enjoying it, but wonder, what will happen with crops, gardens, fruit trees, all the things that need time before it turns hot?   

Is your spring early arriving, also?

Matthew 6:25-34

 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

We are still having winter weather here-hail and snow this weekend in places; snow on the ground this morning (very, very rare for this area past February).
LOVE your spring bulbs--you have quite a variety there! Currently our tete-a-tete daffodils are blooming with the larger Mt Hood daffodils and tulips to follow. This fall I will be planting some more daffodils and other bulbs.
BLessings, Aimee
