Spring Decorating

Have you started spring cleaning yet? Out with dirt and in with clean. Notice how mildew settles in around the window. Yuck. It's time to use vinegar. While you're at it, think about yucky things in your life that is preventing you from feeling clean inside. Like unforgiveness, anger or jealousy. Then get rid of that too. You won't regret it.

Winter leaves its frosty feet
At the doorway with a sigh.
While tree branches sweep the cobwebs
From the silver sky.
In steps gentle lamb with fleeces
Silky, soft and mellow.
And decorates the house with a splash
Of pink and yellow.

Oh, I like the poem. Such wonderful imagery! I think the idea of your book, helping children learn Bible stories with rhyme is excellent. I know I learned so much more when I was young when information was put to a tune or rhymed. I could see how children could really grow and benefit from this!

God Bless!
