new life

I am in love with Spring!

The brown is slowly being replaced by green, the days are growing longer, and the warm weather is seeping into the nooks and crannies of creation.

Everything is full of new life.

Spring has a way of reminding me of the rebirth of my soul. 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17

It urges me to cast aside the old life {fear, pain, doubt} and embrace the new {hope, joy, peace}.

Our lawn is in desperate need of attention, but the boys and I do enjoy how the deer occasionally emerge from the woods in our backyard to feast on the patch of clover. 

I have quit trying to keep Wesley out of my garden box - the boy gravitates to dirt and we don't have a sandbox. Soon it will be time to pull out the weeds that have taken temporary residence during the winter months and plant some tomatoes!

As I am writing this post, I can't help but to chuckle when I look up...

The paper snowflakes Aaron and I made for our family Christmas dinner are still floating above me while I think of spring time.

Perhaps it is time to take them down. :-)

What's your favorite aspect of Spring?
