It’s a beautiful day in our neighborhood

Thoughtfully penned on February 21st, 2007 and generally concerning Spring

Spring is in the air! The days are getting longer and the birds are chirping louder.

It is sunny and in the upper 60s in my part of the world today. We are in a warm spell that will probably be short-lived, but right now I am enjoying it while I can. The first warm days encourage me.

I love Spring. I love to see the daffodils and tulips in bloom. I love to see the trees budding and the spring green of the new leaves and grass. I’ve enjoyed putting Little in the stroller the last couple of days and going for a walk. It is nice to feel the warm (but not too warm) sun on my skin and not need to wear long-sleeves. This is my favorite time of year.

When winter is preparing to melt into Spring I feel an additional joy. Spring is a season of renewal and beauty. The glory of creation is before my eyes in a different way than in other seasons. There is a freshness to the air and to life that only comes this time of year.

I know Spring is just around the corner, and it won’t be long until I can wear sandals again!
