With so many warnings and information from our local authorities, it is difficult not to get anxious. These are trying times and we are all in this together. We can take this time to settle down and watch movies, play games, read a book or write a letter. If you happen to take a walk, you will see beautiful flowers too.
In the midst of this virus Spring has sprung, and these are flowers on my pear tree.
The most beautiful sounds are hearing the birds in the morning. Sometimes they are loud and they wake me up, but I am an early bird anyway (no pun intended). The trees are budding, flowers are blooming and most of all my allergies will be kicking in, but that is another story. I love seeing the beautiful colors of Spring, and knowing that the warm weather is almost here. I have a flowering pear tree, tulips, cherry trees and other flowers.
In these times of worry, lets not overlook the beauty that God has given us. The beauty of the flowers and trees, and the beauty of hearing the sounds of the birds. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalms 19:1) God is known through His creation and everything around us was beautifully created by Him. We cannot forget that God is with us through our times of trouble. He has been and always will be with us and we need to keep our focus on Him.
If you can, go outside and look around and see what God has created for us. His beauty is all around in the midst of anxiety. I am pretty sure once you see the colors and smell the flowers it will put a smile on your face. You may want to take pictures like I did. I am certainly not a photographer, but I think I did okay. It made me happy to see my flowers in bloom and I hope that in the midst of this anxiety you can see the beauty of what surrounds you too.
Stay safe and stay healthy.
