Welcome Spring!

 Isaiah 65:17-18   “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy and her people to be a gladness. 

Ezekiel 34:26-27   And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit and the earth shall yield its increase.  

   Spring is on its way!

I love Spring—warmer weather, longer daylight hours, the bursting forth of flowers emerging from hibernation, birds singing and twittering, and there seems to be a saucier bounce you see in many people’s walks. There’s buoyancy you can almost feel; certainly not like being suspended in a G force, but still a lightness, an expectation.

Everything feels new. Spirits seem lighter after dealing with winter. It’s easier to cuddle down with a good movie and a blanket, maybe with a fire roaring in the chilliness of the season. Certainly, most are able to go about their lives—going to work each day, meeting friends for socializing, and so on, but still after the holidays, many tend to spend more quiet time at home. The winter just seems to invite snuggling in, resting more, and relaxing in the longer dark days.

We wait for the longer days; the gradual earlier appearance of the sun each morning, while the sunsets creep into darkness a little later.

I have so much to celebrate and be thankful DAILY, and spring is a continual time of praising for all the beauty that renews each year.
