Hey friends! March is here, and everything will soon have a spring in its step (pun totally intended ). The days are getting longer, like sunshine stretching out a warm welcome mat. And can we talk about the flowers? They’ll soon pop up like confetti, celebrating nature’s grand reopening!

Think of it – trees shaking off their winter slumber, dressing up in their most vibrant greens. Flowers peeking out, whispering secrets to the bees, their sweet fragrance a symphony for our noses. It’s like a giant, colorful party thrown by God, and we’re all invited!

This vibrant display isn’t just a happy accident. It’s a love letter from God, reminding us of His creativity and the incredible gifts He showers upon us.


Spring is like a spiritual pep talk. Seeing those trees blooming is a high five from the heavens, a reminder that renewal is always possible. Just like Jesus rose from the dead, bringing new life, we too can experience fresh starts and growth in our faith.

March is a time to dance with joy – maybe not literally (though hey, who’s stopping you?), but to let that feeling of lightness and anticipation fill your heart. Bask in God’s grace; soak up the beauty He has painted across the world, from the sun’s soft glow to the delicate green shoots peeking through the ground. It’s a reminder that life can bloom again even after the coldest, darkest seasons.


Let’s fill our new season with laughter that rings out like birdsong and acts of love that spread warmth like sunshine. Let’s embrace the sweet anticipation of spring, not just in the world around us but within ourselves. It’s a time for growth, reaching toward the light, and believing with every fiber of our being that beautiful things are on the way. Today, let’s celebrate the promise of brighter days and the enduring love of our God.

Sweet Tea & Friends is a MONTHLY PARTY and will run from 1:00 am on the 1st of every month through 11:55 pm on the 21st of the month.

    Paula, we have had a few days of spring weather here in East Texas, I have blueberries to get planted and of course my Utility Kitchen project to get completed. Spring always seems like the starting flag in a race! The race to live as well as is possible, for as long as is possible. Thank you for another lovely link-up!

    1. You are so welcome Melynda. I love when you stop by for a visit.

  4. I LOVE spring for all the reasons you mentioned–flowers, green, and hope! The last several years I have started decorating for Easter a lot more, not with bunnies and carrots but with “He is Risen” and flowers and lambs and Easter lilies. I love focusing on that–it is so full of happiness and peace. Thanks for a wonderful message. And thanks for hosting this great linkup. I’ve shared posts 28, 29, and 30 this week and am off to see what others have left and leave some comments. 🙂 See you next week!

  8. Spring seems to have arrived where I am in Kansas even though I don’t think I’m ready for winter to be over! One word to describe March so far would be “wind.” 🙂 That said, I do love your encouragement to embrace spring and new life and joy.

    I appreciate your encouragement to embrace the changes of the seasons in our lives, Paula! And just as winter gives way to springtime, we can embrace His love for us. The leaves on my roses are popping out and the early bloomer (Lady Banks) has rosebuds on it. Spring is definitely in the air!
