I love spring because it is time for the sleepy life of winter to pass and the vivid life of spring to return. I do not like the teasing that comes with the beginning of spring. We have beautiful weather for several days and then out of no where the cold sneaks up without warning. Back and forth like a tug-a-war between spring and winter. We are all shouting for spring to emerge victorious, and eventually she does. However, we still have to endure the harsh breath of winter until spring wins the final battle.
Today we are experiencing the winter's cold breath after many days of sunshine. I spent yesterday morning enjoying reading and praying on the deck. This morning I was looking for a quilt to wrap around me in the heated living room! It will continue this way for several more weeks. Then spring will muster up all of her strength and she will push winter completely out of the game. But for today, I think I will stay inside and bake something nice and warm!
grace and peace,
