SPRING is most definitely in the air, and it smells and sounds wonderful! After a long bout of cold and wet chill ya to the bone weather lately, it’s so nice to feel the warmth of the sun and smell those special scents that only spring brings!
This morning as I was leaving home for the church office, the birds caught my attention by chirping their sweet little songs. They sounded much louder than normal…maybe they were louder to announce the beginning of spring! Their songs sounded as they were being amplified.
The sun is warmer too and feels so good after having such a cold snap as little as a week ago! It’s not often that we have thunderstorms with freezing sleet leaving the trees broken under the ice! With the warmer sun comes the richly green grass! I can’t help but notice that the grass really is extra green! There is no smell on earth like the smell of fresh green grass in the spring.
However, with spring comes spring fever and I must say, I’m feeling it! How fun it would be to have the time to just lay in a hammock with a good book, or go out to the country for an old fashioned picnic even if we did have to share it with the ants.
Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.
