Happy as a Lark

Pam Ford Davis

Spring is “busting out all over!” Tender green leaves adorn the branches of sturdy trees. Colors of bright pink, purple and snow white catch your eye on trees in bloom. A routine drive becomes a delight. Decorative shrubs brighten front yards and daffodils stand up at attention! In our area in the Deep South men and women with gardening plans are breaking ground and making their first trips of the season to the feed and seed stores. Another sure sign is the sound of birds announcing to the world the arrival of spring. Their notes ring clear with praise and joy to their Maker. Yes, they must be happy as a lark!

“Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they lift up their voice among the branches( Psalm 104:12 NAS).” “Where the birds build their nests, And the stork, whose home is the fir trees (Psalm 104:17 NASĀ ).” Are you heading out to play in the dirt? Get your green thumb in gear and whistle while you work; you may hear an echo from the tree tops!
