A walk in the Woods

The other day Faith, Joshua, Josiah, Christianna and I(Grace) headed down to the woods behind our public Library for some hiking and to try to see if we could spot some golden crowned kinglets that Faith and Christianna had seen the day before. Unfortunately, we never caught sight of the little birds but we did have an enjoyable time walking the trails and seeing all the new greenery sprouting up everywhere! God's creation is so beautiful in every season!

‘If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments,
and perform them,
then I will give you rain in its season,
the land shall yield its produce,
and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
Leviticus 26:3-4

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice
before the LORD.
Psalm 96:11-13

Around the base of several trees was springing up a whole 'forest' of young buck hawthorns - the first plant in Spring to show its greenness and the last bit of foliage in Fall to hold onto its leaves!
