Blessed is he that readeth and hear the words ....Revelation 1:3

Blessings for today
This month of May,
Where I can read JPG
Neath' a Flowering tree
And listen to the birds
Bring forth their words
As they joyfully sing~
Thank God for Spring!

Poetry by me AJP

A footnote: Many of the beautiful blossoms that you see on this image were blown off the tree by the next day. It was providence that I shot this picture before the wind storm.

    Andrea, this is definitely one of your best SP's! I admire the fact that you dressed up and posed for each SP. Well, at least you showed your face in all of them. I got a bit tired and did a lot of hand and foot shots...LOL. Congrats on almost completing a whole year of SP's! They are fantastic!
