I love Spring and Summer!
Spring doesn’t officially start until next week, but I am enjoying the springlike weather we’ve been having this week! My crocuses are blooming, I saw some green leaves on a bush today while out for a walk with the kids today.
The new growth is a renewal of life after a long, dormant winter. The trees are budding and getting ready to grow their leaves. Life is just getting ready to burst out all over the place and I want to soak it all in and enjoy the time with my family.
It has been a dormant time spiritually for me. I’ve been memorizing Colossians, so that has been keeping me in the Word, but I feel like I need more. My prayer life also stinks, but I have been praying for many of my friends and bringing them and their requests before God. My prayer life needs to be more heartfelt and meaningful and I just need to enjoy QUIET time with God. All too often I have the radio rambling in the background or other noise going on all the time.
This winter was very mild, by far, and if we had many more like this I could handle winter so much better! 🙂 I like those temperatures. This temperature was last week (early March)!
We have been in such a cold, rainy, nasty weather snap . . . until today! While I haven’t been outside all day, I have enjoyed going outside numerous times and just standing in the sun for a bit. I’ll be doing some coop work this weekend and probably some winter yard preparations. Should be a wonderful weekend! Yay!
