We are all Buds of life

As the buds of spring emerge.  We are reminded of a chance for new beginnings as we journey thru natures world of life, rebirth and death.



For many,  their essence lays deep within their roots.



   A Blackness may descend around them.



They feel only the coldness of the world.  So they curl into a ball and disappear for while.

But the warmth of God’s hand is always there to reach out.



Bringing new light pulling the essence back up from our roots.



We explode with the beauty of life around us .



But sometimes in the world exists a disease and the beauty of what was is taken from us.



We struggle…Some survive to awake each day trying to live again.

Some return from there dark time to live with the light of God in them.



Some can no longer live.



But are taken to where the warmth of Gods hand will enable them to live for all eternity.



We are all buds of life…. 

Weather Healthy, Diseased or Dyeing. 



Reach for the light of love and your lives will always bloom weather here or beyond.



The light of God’s love continues to bring new buds of life……

Hope your life is budding with love

Have a Happy Easter

Good Morning…    Good  Afternoon…  Good Night…

Whatever it is to you

Spring is a time of renewal, re-birth and reconnecting. I’m reminded today to reconnect to all the good in my life, to all that is working in the world.

Hi Carrie,
What a beautiful collection of photo's from different stages of life.
I was very engrossed in reading this...it's beautiful !
I love Spring, it's my favourite time of year.
I'll have to wait a few months for Spring though, it's Autumn here, and I've been out this morning, noticing beautiful gold and rusty colours in the trees. I'll going back out with my camera to try and get some really wonderful shots that say...Autumn!

Carrie..it sounds and looks so beautiful where you live, and you do such an awesome job conveying that beauty !

Happy Easter Carrie!

Happy Spring to you Carrie. I hope you had a wonderful Easter. Sorry it took me so long to get here. It is nice to see the spring flowers, and buds on the trees. Seems everything is coming alive, and it is nice to see the new growth on the trees, etc.

Well you take care and enjoy your spring.

Sunday is the one day of the week, that we should try and dump the work/household chores that we have for a while... and relax. Today being Mother's Day, makes it just that much more special. Special wishes go out to all women who have played the role of 'MOTHER', small or big...including those mothers of furry friends!

My dog and me said...

Thankyou for your kind words Carrie, your visit always give me something to dream about... dream that's dead. Well, dream is gone... let's have hope. Time never stay still... so is the mind. Things i can do before won't be the same like the old days, age or illness? Who know! Will try my noodleland with a few good friends just for fun when mood can cope, not been good lately, spend to much dreaming with the painting on the computer... God, no more dreaming Mei! :-) Have a good Sunday Carrie. Mei
