Gratituesday: Spring is blooming

Yea- I know it's technically a weed, but my mom always thought they were the most beautiful bunch of weeds when we'd pick them for her... :-) But it is yet another sign of Spring on it's way! I know I've been writing a lot about being thankful that spring is coming, but it is always a favorite of mine- the new birth of everything- plants, animals (and the warmth that comes with it:-). What a wonderful reminder of Christ's love for us that these things renew, just as He renews us.
Join Laura at HeavenlyHomemakers for more Gratituesday and tell us what you're thankful for today!

Oh, I will be so happy to see my first weed of the year... Thanks for the encouragement about Christ renewing us...

Make sure you leave a comment on my Gratituesday so that folks know to come read your post!!

(did I just say, "folks"?)

That is the only flower my dad ever gave my mom. He would float them in a small bowl for a centerpiece.

He said they were a flower, created by God; why would he want to mow them down?

I took a picture of a dandelion a couple days ago. I love the bright color against the dead look of my yard.

How ironic this was one of my favorite "D" words today!
