Oh my! What a beautiful day it is outside!! Wind blowing, sun shining, and a spring like warmth fills the air. I was like a little school girl, giddy and giggly! I sat outside for a few minutes breathing in the fresh air and praising God for a night of fright-less storms. I could hardly wait for the washing machine to stop. I’m gonna hang out the laundry today for the first time this year!!
I know it sounds crazy but I just love hanging out the laundry. I enjoy listening to the morning birds and watching my dogs dash across the yard. I love the warm sunshine beaming down on my face. The fresh air blowing my clothes and hearing them whip in the wind. Absolutely my favorite times of the day.. I know I am weird.
It is so hard to believe that tomorrow is March. Seems like 2011 just began yesterday. And well… March is here. Soon it will be time for Easter. Hard to imagine how fast time really flies. I remember with each of my children, I wished time would stand still as I rocked them to sleep. I hoped that they would stay little forever. Ahhhh, now, yet at times I miss the babies stage, I really enjoy their company now. Funny isn’t it??? I am still wishing time could stand still again.
With the flowers beginning to poke their heads out of the ground and the buds are forming on the trees, spring is about to appear. Everything will be renewed and a new start will begin. Isn’t it amazing how God blesses us with spring!! A new beginning..a fresh start… Isn’t that His plan for us? Renewal in Christ? He wants us to grow and blossom.
A beautiful thought on this last day of February.
