Warm weather and rain has put “old man winter” to bed for another year here in Carter County, KY. April has the Kentucky Christian University campus in early spring blooms of pretty purples, yellows, whites and pinks.
Tiny violets and cheerful dandy-lions are growing in the green grass. Ornamental trees show off fully loaded branches of tiny flowers in front of the Library, Smith building and Waters dorm.
Small bushes were found along Snodgrass Lane bursting with blooms and tiny new green leaves. And a cute little ladybug enjoying sunning herself on a leafed out rose bush.
Lets not forget the bluebird sky with puffy white clouds lazily floating by and the birds chirping their happiness at building their new nests.
Yes, spring is here. Thank you Lord, we need this.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Mathew 6:26-27
