“Dear Lord, afford our souls a spring,
Thou know’st our winter has been long;
Shine forth, and warm our hearts to sing,
And Thy rich grace shall be our song.”

That’s the last stanza of the poem “Waiting for Spring” by John Newton. The entire poem has a much broader spiritual meaning, but this last stanza strikes a more earthly note for me right now. I want spring to come! I’m sure I’m not the only one. DH brought seed packets home from the store this weekend. We want to plant!

We still have a parsley plant and a basil plant on the kitchen counter. They are slowly putzing along, but only offer up enough leaves for a recipe now and then. They are tired of winter, too. I do chop a few basil leaves into my salad now then. Nothing better than fresh!
