Today is the first day of spring.
Unfortunately, my family has woken up this morning to snow falling. That hardly seems fair. I mean, if this keeps up, we’re going to miss out on our free Rita’s Italian Ice 🙂
Regardless of the weather, spring is here and with it, hope is in the air. The birds will begin to sing again and the flowers will bloom. And no matter how many times we’ve seen and heard these things, the beauty and mystery of it all still captures our attention and we find ourselves in awe of our creator God. How does he do it every year? He is certainly a master at amazing us through the incredible beauty of the seasons.
Spring is that season that seems to get the best press. Summer can be too hot for some, winter can be too cold, and autumn, for many, is that season that simply delays the cold that will inevitably arrive.
But spring…spring is all about establishing hope in us again. The dreary days of winter begin to fade and the warmth of the sun in spring enables us to have a little more bounce in our step and joy in our hearts.
When you think of spring, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
