Alleluia – By Glenna Oldham

Daffodil footprints

herald the coming of spring

like summer rains

usher in autumn’s bountiful gifts.

Alleluia!

And your life, my friend

makes ready a road for the Lord.

Alleluia!

Oh I praise the Lord

for life and love…

and you, dear friend.

      Thanks Beverly. Yes, I know the feeling! It’s been bitterly cold here and we also had snow again last week and some more at the weekend. I thought these photos would give some cheer as proof that spring really is almost here!
