Sunday Thoughts ~ May 5, 2019

“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Good morning, dear friends.  I believe Longfellow was certainly correct in his thoughts about Spring.  And, in my opinion, the little girl in the painting perfectly expresses his thoughts.  When I found the photo of this painting a few years ago, there was no information about it, which was disappointing, but that doesn’t keep me from loving the work.  I hope it makes you smile.

While here in North Central West Virginia, spring is slowly unfolding into all her magnificent glory,  I know there are several places in the U.S. and Canada still watching winter trying to leave.  So I hope these images and lovely words will be reassuring if spring is slow in making her way to your corner of the world.

“The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.” ~ Harriet Ann Jacobs

The Year’s at the Spring, by Robert Browning


“The year’s at the spring,
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearled;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in his Heaven—
All’s right with the world!”

“Spring is God’s way of saying, ‘One more time!’ ” ~ Robert Orben

Wishing you and yours love, peace, and joy.

And, a day which is Heaven-sent. 

Au Revoir,

I can’t believe I missed this post! Love it! Just adore that painting of the little girl coming into the house with her huge bouquet of flowers from the garden. I wonder if she was going to help her mom.
