Sounds of Spring

The arrival of spring is always a reason for joy. What is more delightful and refreshing after a long winter than when we open our windows to the sounds of spring and sunshine beaming through our windows? It’s not just the warmer weather that brings joy into my heart, but the many sounds that seem to magically signify the arrival of spring.

…..spring comes alive with so many sounds…..

“Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches.” (Psalm 104:12)

The birds are all busy chirping and chatting up a great noise, and it’s impossible to ignore the joyful sounds of fluttering flocks of birds outside our windows! They seem to be saying, “we’re back, we’re back; spring is here!”


“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face” (Victor Hugo)

The joy of hearing my grandchildren’s laughter as they finally make their way outdoors on a beautiful spring day is powerful stuff!  As I stop and listen to children’s happy wonderful voices it makes me smile and creates an instant sensation of laughter. Do you notice how laughter instantly lifts all our moods, makes us feel great, and gives us more energy!

Another one of my favorite outdoor sounds is the sizzling of food on the BBQ grill (not to mention the addictive smell!) The arrival of spring brings out my giddy excitement about changing our weekly menu, and I always wait with great anticipation to fire up the grill when spring announces its arrival.  It’s a great time to bring families and friends together after being stuck inside and enjoy the sounds of friendship, laughter, and games.
“Then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.” (Leviticus 26:4)

What better way to end a beautiful day in spring than to relax to the soothing sound of rain and (even better!) a thunderstorm? As the clouds and rain start to roll in I can’t help but to step outside and listen to the rain start to pour, hear the music of the winds, followed by the crackling sounds of thunder.

…Spring is when life’s alive in everything…

Spring is a time for renewal, and all of the flowers and trees that bloom, and the magical sounds of joy and beauty this time of year are a reminder that God gives us renewal through faith in Jesus!

Linking up with Tracy at "My Daily Walk in His Grace" on Winsome Wednesday!

  3. Hi Denise - I love spring, when all the new leaves come out and the birds sing and everything just seems more alive. Even though we are going into winter over here, I feel as though there is spring in my soul. i am so grateful to God for that.

  4. Spring always brings sweet memories of childhood to me - swinging on a swing in our town park and bike riding in the neighborhood, fleshly mown grass. Thanks for those sweet reminders today!

  5. I do so love to see all of the variety of birds in the feeder, so many more than through the winter months! I am a fan of spring, and children's laughter, and BBQ, & yes even those thunderstorms! (especially at night)
