Greenest of green greeted me as I awoke that first morning in Alabama. Forest of trees are all around. The house had an excellent screened in porch where we enjoyed breakfast amidst birdsong each morning. One mockingbird greeted my friend with “judyjudyjudy” repeatedly. A lovely peaceful world to break from the hilarity of life. Breathe deeply and relax.
Then it was back to Denver where the semi-desert region lacked the lush green. However, Spring is just beginning and after it finally wins the battle with winter, we will have warm sunny days as it unfolds; then softly flowing breezes will caress my face as I walk and warm sunshine fill my heart with its light and love. It reminds me of my Lord with His gentle strength. My heart rejoices as I delight in the trees dressed in white and pink blossoms, and gardens coming alive again with red and yellow tulips, joyful daffodils, sweet smelling purple lilacs, pansies turning their vibrant faces to the sun. Spring! New life! However, tomorrow it will snow and temps will dip to near freezing; sadly, winter has not given up yet. So we can only be patient till the days of Spring's full victory.
You know I get so psyched waiting for Spring, that one day there is snow on the ground, I cry aghast “Christmas in May? No!” However, in reality, this is Colorado, and we do love it! Right? And there is something about rain and snow that refreshes and washes away the grime. We don’t get a lot of it here, so when it does come, it is refreshing, and we do need it. As I was driving down the street, I glanced at the mountains and they were green, green! Beautiful!
God is so good! He replenishes our souls with the things He knows we need. Each season brings His gifts for our enjoyment. Thank You loving Lord!
