Today I am thankful that we are standing on the threshold of Spring! I know there will probably be a few more cold days, but I can't wait to enter into this glorious and hopeful season! My body seems to thrive on sunshine and warmth.
Spring promises growth and new life. Yesterday, while driving into town, I noticed that the grass along the highway is beginning to turn green and soon the beautiful Texas bluebonnets will start to appear everywhere! The trees in my yard are budding and it won't be long before the birds will start searching for little nooks to build their nests.
Daylight savings time will begin next week, bringing longer evenings to enjoy all these wonders and restless students will begin to squirm in their seats, dreaming of baseball and soccer games, swimming lessons and trips to the beach. Eager adults will make trips to the nursery to buy little seedlings, bags of soil and new garden gloves to use as a pallette for painting a canvas of color, scent and texture in their yards.
Yes, it's almost here and I rejoice and thank the Lord for allowing me another opportunity to marvel at the beauty of His creation!
"For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth: the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land" Song of Solomon 2:11,12
