Springtime!

When spring begins
Again to light
Our happy world
With colors bright,
The robins all come
Back to see
How beautiful The earth will be,
With crocus gold,
And daffodils
Lighting meadows,
Fields, and hills;
With leaves of green
And tulips gay,
And birds arriving
Every day.

The Call of Spring by Norman Schlichter

Spring is always a beginning. The bleariness of winter is over and all of the colours of the earth are coming out. The sounds of the birds and sounds of children’s laughter and playing outside are rampant. Such wonderful sights and sounds! Such a celebration of the earth!

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

The Broken Road – Life itself….. Today is the year anniversary of the passing of my last love, Di. I had 9 ½ wonderful years with Di. A relationship I will never forget and also a chapter in my life where I learned so very much about relationships. This last year has been one of the shortest and at the same time one of the longest years of my life. However, God has smiled upon me and has given me many, many wonderful things as my life -- Friends, Family, Loves, Talents, Abilities, Good Health, and so very much more. I thank the Lord for guiding me along The Broken Road. Now a time has come for a new relationship – a new love for my life – the next part of the path of my life – something already written upon a scroll between God and Me. Blessings yet to come….. Yes! I am so very Grateful and I am so very Hopeful and Thankful!

I am so Blessed!
