A Spring in My Step

There’s a spring in my step
When the blossoms bud like jewels
And the world embraces renewals.

It reminds me of Christ
And the promises He made
So I no longer need to be afraid.

There’s a spring in my step
Because my Saviour’s blood did spill
So my underserved life will be fulfilled.

A plan set out by God
Conceived from the start
To speak to my trembling heart.

There’s a spring in my step
Because my Lord did inspire
A spark that became a fire.

I wrote this to celebrate the first day of Spring here in Australia. The photo is my rosemary bush in flower.

Beautiful, Lynda! I hope you
enjoy your spring as I plan
to enjoy my fall.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Really nice!
And to celebrate the beginning of our fall, it appears the US will get a hurricane.

Lynda Young said...

Thanks, Sandy

Alex, oh dear... I hope it's not a big one and doesn't do too much damage :\ I'll certainly pray for anyone in its path.

Amanda said...

That's a beautiful flower and poem. Today has started off beautifully... perfectly blue even if extremely windy. Bracing ourselves for the coming heat (a few months away).

Lynda Young said...

Amanda, the silly wind kept moving the bush. It took me ages to get a good shot.

While you have a spring in your step I look forward to fall..

Lynda Young said...

Sunnycalgirl, the inbetween seasons are great. They are a slow transition that introduces us to change :)

Stuff could always be worse said...

Beautiful flower! I do love Spring also. It is life!

DORCAS said...

This is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

Lynda Young said...

Kim, I'd never seen a rosemary flower before. :)

Dorcas, blessings to you too :)

And may you always keep that fire burning and let it spread to those you encounter.

Tossing It Out

Lynda Young said...

Thanks, Arlee. You too.

Thanks Diane, it was worth the struggle with the wind ;) Thank goodness for digital photography!

Lovely verse, Lyn...I wasn't even aware rosemary bushes flowered....

Lynda Young said...

Hi Rebekah, I'm well. I hope your pregnancy is going well :)

Karen, neither was I. I'd never seen a rosemary bush in flower before so I had to capture it :) The flowers are tiny.
