Spring is Springing...

Butterflies! Joy! Hard at work in the flower beds yesterday.
Today...just trying to walk and bend over. :)
 Spring flowers...

 Mr. Gnome is happy we pulled the weeds around him so that he can see.
5k this morning. These guys really make me laugh.
So thankful that I belong to them and that we belong to God.

Hear the bells ringing, they're singing that we can be born again.
Hear the bells ringing, they're singing Christ is risen from the dead.
The angel up on the tombstone said He is risen just as He said.
Quickly now, go tell His disciples that Jesus Christ is no longer dead!
Joy to the world, He is Risen! Hallelujah.
He is Risen! Hallelujah!

Busy, busy, busy. Have you ever been in a spot spiritually where it was clear that God just wants you to sit and wait and listen and learn? Maybe to stop the busy-ness and take a chill pill?

Here is Ft. Davis, Indian Lodge in the state park and the Ft. Davis old fort in pictures. Enjoy...

 Downtown Ft. Davis. One main street. A gorgeous old hotel. Soda shop. Rocking chairs and peace...
