This is my Father's World
I love my yard in May so this morning I took pictures. Then while reading I came across the perfect description -- Spring! The days get longer, temperatures become warmer, trees bud, plants sprout, flowers bloom, grass greens up, bees start buzzing, and birds and animals come out more. We could describe it as a time of renewal or re-birth, of new beginnings. Spring can therefore be used as a reminder of the new life we have in Christ. — Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Cor. 5:17)--- Enjoy

Another new project
Once upon a time I had beautiful handwriting. Then I broke my arm. Now my writing looks like scribble. Even with practice, it still looks shaky.
