Little Squirrel and Spring Blossoms

A little squirrel enjoying climbing in the Bradford Pear... and it was a treat to get a glimpse of him through the branches.

The colors were beautiful..... 

My intention was to photograph those beautiful blossoms against the rich blue sky... and seeing a little squirrel in there was an extra treat.  :)  

You can just barely see him hiding in there and eating something... he was shy and kept moving.

Our world is a strange place these days with the coronavirus, stay at home orders, social distancing, businesses closed, work on hold for many and so many things going on that we hadn't imagined could happen.

How nice to see that the beauty of spring goes on anyway... the blossoms flower, the animals and birds have new young and the weather changes.

Hide and Seek with a squirrel is a new thing, but he didn't seem to mind as I moved to see him better.

This photo shows the new blossoms and leaves and also the old dried fruit from last year that is still clinging to the tree. 

I love the colors... and the beauty of God's creation and it reminds me that He is the same yesterday and today and … FOREVER! 

I hope you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. So much going on in the world and many fearful things happening and out of our control.... but they are not out of His control. 

"In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence; and His children shall have a place of refuge." Proverbs 14:26

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are also enjoying God's creation this spring and learning to lean on Him more and more. I know He keeps teaching me more of leaning on Him and trusting.... it is good to keep learning more and more and I am so very thankful to be one of His children. 
Do you have a verse that is comforting to you in this time? I would love for you to share it in the comments. May God bless each of you with safety, peace, trust and hope in God in these hard times.
