I wonder how many of us have been hovering over our plants looking for signs of newness, signs of life in the form of blooms. We have not seen a single snowflake this winter. Maybe a few of you would have been willing to auction some of your snow off to the highest bidder. I like new beginnings and I may be repeating myself but it is true. I appreciate opportunities that allow me to make improvements, to change for the better, to make better choices and decisions. This time of the year represents for many, New Life, Resurrection. A new day to revive perhaps what has gotten stale in our daily regime. Here is a little preview of what’s happening in our yard. I see beauty in the face of a flower. Ladybugs are a reminder that all is ok and that God is in control..
We are called to walk by faith and not by sight. We were not seeing signs of spring, and even though we knew it was coming we wanted to see evidence. The little plants were doing their thing underneath the blanket of cold. Surviving without our help. Being patient and waiting for their time to shine and put a smile on our faces..
Having lived in our location for almost two years I have grown to appreciate the unique style of houses. They all have their individual look and it’s fun to pay attention to those that stand out in their uniqueness. Just like people..We all have different talents, abilities and features. Some of us lack in stature…me…but I have a big heart.. (: Some houses are big and roomy, some are small and compact…me again, and then some houses are warm and inviting. I tend to look for charm and on the vintage side. But, to have a roof over our head is a blessing.We make it homey by adding our own special touch…no matter what it is made of. Once upon a time we lived in a tent for a few months. We were fine with it, until the squirrels decided that we were very nice people. They thought, we wouldn’t mind if they invited themselves in, while we were away one afternoon. We are again looking to relocate, and so the quest begins again. Cabin or cottage charmer, we are looking..
