Photo Friday: Farewell to Winter

Happy Friday!

It’s Friday 13th and we are one week away from Spring. The vernal equinox falls on March 20th at 6:45pm EST this year. The daffodils and hyacinths are already beginning to bloom around Atlanta. Soon, winter’s last clinging leaves will fall from American Beech trees to make room for fresh new occupants.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”
—Lamentations 3:22-24
