No, not much at all
when you think about it.
Winter can be so long
and depending on your particular situation
it can seem even longer.
It has been so for me.
So this morning when I tied on my running shoes
and went outside
my heart flipped with excitement at the warm breezes.
Instead of running I found myself looking all around
at the thousands of little signs of spring.
A carpet of delicate blue flowers
a fragrant purple hyacinth
a forsythia with freshly opened yellow blooms.
The more I saw
the more I began to see.
It’s always that way isn’t it?
Once we begin to see something
our vision clears and we begin to see more clearly.
Winter lasts only for a season
but Spring always comes.
Do you see the signs of Spring all around?
Is the Winter of your life changing into a time of new life and possibilities?
We need the winter –
that time to be quiet and rest in His Care. The time to grieve and to be still.
But like the changing of seasons
ever so slightly we notice new life
This is your time to sing, my friend.
Pull out that idea and begin again.
Make that call
Send that email
Explore the markets
and above all take action.
Winter has gone and Spring has come.
All things are become new.
What about you?
Anything you had laid to rest during the cold of Winter?
May His Life fill you with wonder as you begin again.
Those little blue flowers sing a glorious message.
with all you’ve got.”
