Ever since doing the 5 day B&W photo challenge earlier this month, I only want to edit in black & white.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23

Oh, how we've been longing for you.
In this part of the world, winter lasts more then half the year; way too long!
So when spring finally arrives we've had enough of the cold, and the warmth brings so many possibilites.
The days are longer. Life feels more productive. Leaves growing, flowers budding; all such beautiful signs of spring.
We're glad you're here.

for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:11-12 (ESV)
