black and white Wednesday - beauty of Spring

Grace Spring diptych bubbles

'Sitting quietly, doing nothing.
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.'

~ Lao Tzu

'Is it so small a thing
To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved, to have thought, to have done.'

~ Matthew Arnold

'And the Spring comes slowly up this way.'

~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

To say that Spring (here) has come slowly is a bit of an understatement.
We seem to be stuck between Winter and Spring.
But I'm confident that it'll arrive.
It always does.

'Easter spells out beauty,
the rare beauty of new life.'

~ S.D. Gordon

'Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection,
not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.'

~ Martin Luther
