Color Your Home With the Promise of Spring

At Getting Creative With Carolyn, we are reflecting on the meaning of spring and rebirth.  We are reflecting on new beginnings and fresh starts.

I don’t know about you, but I’m grateful that I live in a world that promises me many springs. I’m grateful for fresh starts and new chapters unfolding. I’m grateful that beauty still grows even in a dark and cold world and that a single flower can still grow up even in concrete.

It Will Be Alright

“Here comes the sun, and I say it’s alright.”

After a long and cold winter, the green leaves will start to emerge, and spring will come again.  What was dead will come back to life.  What lay dormant will emerge.  The ice will slowly melt, the birds will sing again, and those beautiful flowers will come back even brighter and more lovely. It may not be the same, but it will be better. It will be alright, and spring will come again.

Beauty and Hope Will Grow Again

“Sun…sun…sun…here it comes…”

So we hold on to hope.  We hold on to beauty.  We hold on to the promise of spring and new life. We hold on to the idea of rebirth.  We see chapters ending in our life, but we also see that there is something even better waiting for us.

It’s fascinating to see the world coming alive with the colors of spring. Everything that was dormant comes to life again. We can feel this rebirth in our spirits as we anticipate spring. I’ve been drawn to wildflowers more and more over the years. It is the way they spring up even in a messy environment that inspires me to see how beauty and hope will grow despite a chaotic world surrounding it.

Here Comes the Sun

At Getting Creative With Carolyn, we are grateful for the warmth of new dreams and loved ones.  We reflect with gratitude on the promise of spring in our own life. We smile at the promise of new life, fresh starts, and new chapters waiting to unfold in our life.

We are coloring our home with the promise of spring with energizing pops of yellow.

Let Your Heart Smile Again

We don’t always get our happily ever after the way we think it will happen.  Life doesn’t always turn out the way we expect it to, but we can let our heart smile again. Just when we think the winter will never end, we see a host of golden daffodils—the first splash of color after a gray winter.

Let some sunshine into your home with some flowers that make your heart happy.  Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers.  Go out and fill your home with flowers that make your heart smile.


Appreciate the Little Things

We are grateful for the promise of spring especially after many cold, dark, and rainy days. We look forward to the flowers blossoming, the first butterflies, the warmth of the sunshine, and the orchestra of birds.  We appreciate the little things, and we anticipate the cherry blossom emerging.


Reenergize With Loved Ones

I am grateful that when we have a death of a dream in our life that beauty is still whispering our name, calling us to take its hand, get up, and find that there may be a better dream that we were not expecting in the next chapter of our life.

Those tables and couches that you beautifully decorated—use them each week to connect and reconnect with loved ones.

Recharge. Refresh. Your new beginning is waiting.

Before daylight savings arrives, bring your own sunshine into your home. Let the promise of spring bring you a renewed sense of purpose and hope.
