Springtime


I love Springtime…..

Now those of you that know me would be surprised by this statement as I love cold weather, I love snow, blizzards- snow blowing sideways so hard you can’t see across the street.

Springtime is different- you can have snow, you can have rain, you can have brilliant sunny days that are a little chilly in the morning and you can wear shorts in the afternoon (my sister use to say the best day was when you could wear shorts and a sweatshirt together).

I love Spring when you are doing a bit of early yard work and you clear away the leaves from last fall and there is just a little tip of a new flower peeking through the dirt, just waiting for the perfect time to burst out of the ground and share its beauty with us.

I love Spring – the days are getting a little longer each day, the sun seems to shine a bit brighter, daylight savings time starts, spring break for kids - the days just seems fresher.

I love Spring because of Easter. The promise that Easter brings, of new beginnings, new hope, fresh starts. Easter.

The time when we give thanks for Jesus Christ our Lord for dying on the cross for us, for dying for our sins, for creating the SPRING in us, for bringing new hope .

Happy Spring to you both inside and out.
