Spring is a season of fresh green growth. After a long season of hibernation, taking shelter from the cold, we reawaken and reemerge. Warm weather welcomes us as the buds gently awaken, turning their faces towards the sun and naturally and beautifully bloom and blossom.
This is an ideal time to be inspired, springing into spring. Learn from and live by these life verses and quotes as you make the most of your spring!
Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams.
Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.
They waited for me as for showers and drank in my words as the spring rain.
When a king’s face brightens, it means life; his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.

“Beautiful Spring” – Lyrics by Susan and Hans
Birds emerge from a sea of green
As I stand outside painting
No more cold days, no more waiting.
Sometimes I feel like I can fly
Sometimes I cry but don’t know why
Little white clouds floating by.
Are they yours or are they mine?
Sometimes I feel like I can fly
Sometimes I cry, but don’t know why
After transcending out of winter’s icy grip and many months of crippling cold, moody gray skies turn an optimistic blue as the sun’s rays shine through.
Wings spread, taking flight, our spirits set free as we soar through the sky. Songbirds grace our ears melodically, synchronizing and harmonizing among the symphony of nature. Crickets chime in, joining nature’s chorus in a string section of joyous sounds. The spring season embraces our ears. The silence of winter is over and spring lives on. From dusk to dawn, a glorious sunrise spreads across the horizon reminding us of the continuity of life and beauty of eternity that cannot be defined.
The “greening” of the trees is almost imperceptible. Hints of green color transform and burst into a glorious canopy of green leaves. New life is bursting out. Soon we’ll be tilling the soil. We’ll gather watering cans and soaker hoses in a cyclical journey to nurture a vibrant garden, thriving and growing.
With the dawning of spring, we celebrate the grace and triumph of a brand-new fresh day, a new season, and a new chapter in the book of our lives.
