Apple blossoms bursting wide now beautify the tree
And make a springtime picture that is beautiful to see ….
Oh, fragrant lovely blossoms, you’ll make a bright bouquet
If I but break your branches from the apple tree today ….
But if I break your branches and make your beauty mine,
You’ll bear no fruit in season when severed from the vine ….
And when we cut ourselves away from guidance that’s divine,
Our lives will be as fruitless as the branch without the vine ….
For as the flowering branches depend upon the tree
To nourish and fulfil them till they reach futurity,
We too must be dependent on our Father up above,
For we are but the branches and He’s the Tree of Love.
Helen Steiner Rice
Feed your faith, and your doubts will starve to death.
When we do what we can, God will do what we can’t.
God still speaks to those who take time to listen.
We never fail to be in awe of your creation. We are again seeing the signs of new birth in the beautiful array of spring flowers that are springing to life all around us. Sometimes Lord when we are feeling low we go into ourselves instead of turning to you. We ask you Lord that we open our hearts to you, just as the bulbs open up to reveal their beauty, that we turn our faces to you , just as the spring flowers turn to the warmth and the sun so that they grow in splendour.
May we grow in faith daily, laying our troubles before you so that instead of being anxious we are strengthened by you.
Let us step forward in harmony reaching out in love and compassion to all whom we meet so that all may know Your great love.
