Ready for Spring
Spring has come to the south and so have I.
What a gift to retreat from the grey of snowless winter to a wonderland of sunshine and color!
I want to take it in and keep it with me.
Stepping out of my routine for a few days, visiting family, followed by a full week of solitude... the change and the quiet allows me to tune into senses made alive!
This last season has been a long one.
Something dormant inside of me is awakened, and I'm inspired in a way I haven't felt in a year or more.
Ideas spring up like flowers.
Beauty inspires beauty.
Beautiful thoughts make the soul beautiful.
New life is everywhere!
I came a long way to see it, and I don't want to miss a moment...
I want to take it all in, remember these precious little moments.
Oh, the beauty of a moment.
Moments don't last.
If I don't enjoy the gifts of life today,
they will be gone.
Today offers me a gift.
I am rested. I am refreshed. I am ready to give to the weary. I am full of hope of the newness to come because I've seen it. I know it is near.
As I travel and the scenery changes, as I venture further from the warm, sunny, blooming places, I sense a mission of encouragement.
Lord, help me hold on to what I have seen.
Keep this fresh and alive in my heart.
