HaPpY SpRiNg!

Every year we know that Spring is right around the corner when these little beauties push their little sleepy heads up through the ground.  It shows me how resilient the daffodil can be.  Can you tell where these spring bulbs are growing?  

That's right, they're growing in the driveway along the foundation of the house.  They have been popping their pretty little heads up through the pavement for many years.   The pavement buckles & the soil is pushed up when the daffodil pops through the surface.  That is amazing!

We can learn much from God's creation.  When life is hard (like rocky soil or pavement), we can be like the resilient daffodil...pushing through the tough days, never giving in to the obstacles, always persevering.  We all know first hand what that is like.  How much do you appreciate and are blessed by that spirit of tenacity?

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Philippians 4:13

Have a great Sunday!


  1. So sweet. So true. God is good! Lisa~

  2. How great that those daffodils are something you can count on every spring -- even through the driveway! Sometimes I wonder if my "tenacity" is code for stubbornness (or stupidity). Once I remind myself who the boss is (and that I have to listen to Him) life is much better -- I know He's always got my back.
    Enjoy the spring!

  3. What a great post and something we all need to be remined of from time to time. Thanks for stopping by and your gracious comments. I really appreciate it. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

  4. That is so very cool!~ I love tulips, just bought a bouquet the other day and waiting for them to open. I am hoping to dig and plant them and hopefully next year they will pop up!

  5. What a nice post! The first picture I was like "where are these growing?" :) I love daffodils. We certainly can learn a lot from the little daffodils.
    thanks for commenting on my little fireplace screen re-do.
    Good luck with your Spring cleaning and such!

  6. It's so funny reading all these Spring posts. I'm in Australia and rather than tulips coming up our leaves are just beginning to turn red and yellow! Just followed you here from Primitive and Proper. I'd love if you wanted to check my new blog out and let me know what you think. It's all about budget decorating and design with lots of hints and tips! Thought it may interest your junkn' side.

  7. How truly amazing to see them growing through the asphalt!
