The Colors of Spring

By Ralphine Major

It was only a couple of weeks ago that a small cluster of Easter flowers bloomed in the yard, their bright yellow color a distinct contrast to the barren ground below them.  Days later, a whole line of yellow blooms appeared along the fence.  While they are now beginning to fade and wither, spring does not lack beauty.  Get ready, Spring is bringing her parade of colors again this year.

Almost overnight, nature’s landscape can burst into a palette of gorgeous colors.  Already, forsythia bushes are bringing their yellow blooms to the spring scene.  There will be more to look forward to as the pink and white dogwood trees bloom.  The reddish-purple color of the redbud trees and the white blooms of the Bradford pear trees are always a joy to behold.  The deep purples and lavenders of the creeping phlox will mushroom over the ground, and multicolored tulips will add to the mix of color as well.  It is unbelievable how little color there may be one day; and overnight, colors seem to appear almost like magic.  While spring offers one of the most beautiful seasons of the year, her beauty is fleeting.  Enjoy the Creator’s masterpieces while they are here, for they are truly magnificent.


Words of Faith: “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8 (KJV).
