Seeing is believing....




"Faith.....
the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen."

~Somehow it's just so much 
easier to believe in something 
when you see it.~

(guess you could say I'm lacking in the Faith Department....)

Nancy said...

Hey, I'm a "I'll believe it when I see it" kinda gal. No apologies. :)

Love your photos -- I see your peonies are making a valiant attempt to push through the dirt.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

THANK GOODNESS! I've been a little worried that spring forgot about you up there!

Deb said...

YEAH SPRING

Judy said...

Woohoo!!! We found a Kildeers nest the other day and I felt the same way. I felt spring was officially here.

sage said...

I don't think you're lacking in the faith dept... Nice shots, glad spring is arriving there. Here, the May Apples are up! I need to get a photo of them.

Leah J. Utas said...

Robin's eggs. Yay!

becky said...

It looks like spring has finally sprung! The nest & eggs are soooooo cute. I love the new growth of spring!

Great photos as usual. There is something so amazing about Robin's eggs. I guess it must be the color. Another one of nature's wonders. Have a great Mother's Day.

I'm doing a little hallelujah chorus for you right now! So glad spring has finally made it to you. It must have went through the mail, it took so long.

Very nice to see the progression, lovely pics and thoughts Dawn.I am about 3 weeks ahead of you. I am going to a tulip festival again today in Pella, Iowa.

Meg said...

Yay! I'm so glad you have spring! What is that poking up out of the ground?

Hi Kooky said...

I think God gives us some visuals to help our faith along. :) Aren't those eggs a magnificent blue?

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I love spring as I keep repeating...I try to have faith

darlin said...

Dawn after this long, cold, never ending winter we've had it's no wonder that it's hard to keep the faith. I love the blue eggs, they're so pretty and a sure sign of spring. Thank you for restoring my faith. This morning I awoke to street cleaners, a much better sound than graders! Have a fantastic weekend!

bon bon said...

yay!! those who lack the change of seasons just don't understand our rejoicing. ;o)

Trisha said...

I posted such a similar nest photo today as well! Mine only has 2eggs :(
So HAPPY to see your signs of spring!!Hooray!!

Wonderful photography. Glorious spring will truly burst wide open one of these days. Today I noticed that our trees are beginning to cast shade. The buds have opened in southern Ontario.

Wow, what beautiful eggs! I love the colour of them! I also love your other photo's.

I love the quote you used, I've heard that in a song I have on my ipod. I listen to it when I need some sort of inspiration.

Tracy said...

I think faith is fluid...some things I have a great deal of faith in; like the resilience of people but other things; like the government, I have no faith in!
I love the robin's eggs; how sweet!
Happy Spring to you AND happy Mother's Day!

Jacob said...

Believing in something for which there is utterly no evidence is probably not too smart in the long run...and "faith" is overrated, methinks.

Nothing like real things you can touch and feel and "know" that spring has sprung!

Have a great weekend!

Alan O'Riordan said...

You may be lacking in the faith department, but you're positively brimming with the knack of storytelling. Are you Irish?:-)

ladyfi said...

Wonderful quote to go with these utterly magical photos!

Rolf said...

It is May only once a year
