The Snowdrop.

I wanted to share this with you today.......

When Adam and Eve were turned out of the garden of Eden the climate took a turn for the worse, becoming shockingly cold. Seeing Eve weeping in her misery as the snow fell and angel took pity on her, breathing on the falling flakes so each turned to a snowdrop on reaching the ground there to be a symbol of returning warmth and hope for the world.

I thought these were very fitting words during this very cold and awful spell of weather we are having this week. Till next time. Love Joan.

We all need hope at this time of year. It seems that Spring will never come. It will though it always does. Today we are blessed with sunshine but only 11 above 0 degrees for us. So there is no melting or warmth, but sunshine is so great to see anyway.
