I took this expressions picture this morning. We had about 2-3 inches of snow last night and this morning this tulip was showing through the snow. I've been overwhelmed with the wonder of spring this year as I feel I've been given a new chance at life. I've been reborn - after the recovery from surgery and coming out of the fog of chemo, my life - in fact, all of our lives - are like this tulip - rising up out of the snow. I pray that each and every one of us will continue to be strong in our new life!
Blessings to all, Beth

    You should turn this into a greeting card
    Beth,

    Consider making a greeting card - tulip rising up out of the snow and your sisters, growing strong in our new life with spring upon us. Great comparison!

    Lots of Hugs,
    Janelle

    I'm glad you've all enjoyed the picture and sentiment. Yesterday my husband and I were taking a walk in the woods and he, being ever so much more observant than I, noticed a large boulder with a hole in it - and peeking out of that hole was a green plant. He said, "It's another example of life coming out of death!" We went for the camera and took several shots of it. How amazing that even in the dryest and most unlikely of places, new life can spring up! If I can wax philosophical even more, I would say that those who don't see God around them just aren't looking hard enough. His lessons are bountiful in nature - and in our own lives as we see His hand holding us through our BC journeys.
    Have a wonderful day filled with blessings and unexpected lessons, dear friends!
