They are returning HOME !! 

"Can you feel the HOPE"?

Spring is near!!

The NEW LIFE bursting forth!

Therefore if ant man be in Christ,
he is a new creature;
old things are passed away;
behold all things become new.
                                      II Corrinthians 5:17

by Belle Schmidt

There is no traffic jam in the sky
when you spread your wings and fly
south along a boundless,
trackless pathway. 
In undulating V-formation
unerringly you cross the nation,
wings waving to people far below.
Day after day, 
like a precision drill team,
sun catching your feathers’ gleam,
in and out you weave and waver;
but never stray. 
Your hoarse honking, its purpose clear,
although strident to our ear,
conveys to the flock aloft;
there’s no delay. 
Guided along by an unseen force,
you  follow an instinctive course,
and make us beneficiaries
of this wondrous display.

 Speaking of "Spring",
 in the NEW Spring issue of
Early Homes Magazine,

from pictures on this post:

Some pictures and a quote of mine were published in an article
about Old Fort Niagara by Catherine Lundie
It feels pretty nice to be a part of a magazine that I admire and enjoy!


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prosper
that thou mayest prosper
3 John 1:2
Do You Know JESUS?
