Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Spring Is Here

It is finally Spring here. Just a few months ago I thought this wonderful weather would never come. These past few days have been absolutely gorgeous. The kids and I have spent many hours outside playing and walking and having picnics. This is the time of year when I really appreciate living here.

The other day I was driving down the street looking at all the green yards and was amazed at how just a few weeks ago we were still getting snow. Now everything is green, the weather is beautiful, and the flowers are blooming. I get to hear the laughter of the children and the chirping of the birds, this is a great season.

It also makes me think about the different seasons we go through in life. A winter season in life can be really rough but then Jesus redeems us with a wonderful Spring or Summer. What a faithful God we serve. We all know that there are seasons that we will go through, but from know on during my Winter's I am going to try to remember that a Spring is just around the corner.

Spring is all of God's creation shouting out, screaming their joy. Only we can't hear it with our ears, we hear it with our eyes and hearts.
