Ode to Spring

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

It is here it is here....Wonderful Spring!!! That time of the year when the cold winter that has held us hostage is being defeated by the warm sun. The time of the year when new life springs from the ground and and the birds nest in the new foliage of the trees; so that their song can be shared with all who listen. Spring is the season where hopeful gardeners dream of the harvest to come. The refreshing comes and the new hope fills the air with it's perfume.

Who can not love spring and all that is symbolizes??

The sleeping occupants of the earth are awake again, ready to entertain the humans who think they own the earth (silly humans...it is only on loan, so treat it well!!). The bare arms of the trees are clothed again in their beautiful leaves and the brown carpet of grass turns to a brilliant green dotted with bits of yellow and lavender.

Perhaps I am romanticizing this glorious season but what is life with out a little romance.......winter????

Life Update

Well we have listed the house. That was a very hard thing for me to do......I never thought I would have such a hard time with it. This is a season of loss and God gives you double for your trouble so I am excited about where He is going to lead us.

The Donner seems to really like it in Florida and can't wait for the rest of us to get down there. It has been hard having him gone so much but we have been through it before and made it so this time will be no exception. He is home this week so there is a list of projects to work on.

My usefulness at work is getting less, so I am going to be going down to part time. It all works out because Donnie stated that he has a big list of things for me to work on when he is gone. I have lots of projects I would like to work on before we move too......I will miss the little family I have gained by working but the time has come to move on.

God has been allowing me to deal with a lot of things I thought I had dealt with so I know it is a season of growing and for that I am thankful. After a season of learning life seems to be a little sweeter. I guess you could say that the purging going on in our lives isn't just physical stuff.

I hope that I will become a better manager of my time and get back to the blogging community. I appreciate all of you who have stopped by and really appreciate your comments. Here is to more blog friendships!!!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!!!
Of all the holidays we celebrate I believe this is the most precious. Easter commemorates the the greatest gift given to man kind. Our God became a man and suffered for our sins to conquer death so that we could have eternal life. Thank you Jesus for the greatest gift ever given!!!!
