We are 2 days away from one of my favorite seasons of the year….SPRINGGGGGG TIMMMMMEEEE!!! There is so much to celebrate in this new season…the beautiful warm weather, my birthday (yayy!!!), my Sweet Pea’s birthday (Big 3) and one of the most important holidays for a Christian…Resurrection Sunday!! I simply enjoy the sense of “newness” in the air during this season, don’t you? It’s nothing better than waking up in the morning to the sound of the birds chirping outside of the window, or being able to sleep with the window rose, enjoying the cool night breeze.
Have you ever just taken a moment to stop and enjoy the beauty of nature that the Lord has blessed us with? I did the other day. The weather last Sunday was GORGEOUS!!! There were clear blue skies that day, no clouds, a bright beautiful sun shining on our faces, a nice easy breeze…ahhhh it was just amazing! After service I decided to let Sweet Pea play outside for a while to get some fresh air. While she was entertaining herself with her toys and the grass and sticks (lol) I just took a moment to take a deep breath and enjoy all that was around me. We complain about so many foolish things in life and yet never take the opportunity to just stop and smell the roses, literally.
I’m going to start taking more opportunities like this one where I just stop and thank God for the little things that are so easily taken for granted. Spring Fever you say? Why Yes I do have touch of it and I do not want to be healed from it anytime soon! So here’s to the new season in weather, a new season in life…
“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
