Spring prayers

Sometimes answers to our prayers arrive in the same way as Spring.  One day we hear a new bird song, another day we see an eagle soaring, snow melts, and we look forward to some work in the yard, in the sunshine.   Seemingly small things add up to transformation and a new season.  God is with us always and He loves us.

Two Haiku by Carol Purington

The remembrance
of sunbright fields . . .
this chilly haymow

Shades of apple jelly –
in each jar the unique savor
of an heirloom tree
