First Day of Spring - Ha! Ha!
After long winters, freezes, gray skies and icy roads we look forward to springtime. We look forward to spring because it brings newness, recovery and promise of beauty and good things. Today is the first day of spring and guess what? We have approximately 11 inches of snow with predictions of more to come. A major cold front with two separate blasts from the north began to invade our "warm" town last evening and has continued to drop huge snowflakes. Just about the time we see budding of trees, spring bulbs popping up from the soil, fresh air and sunshine....what a surprise. It IS the most beautiful snow by far that I can remember. I choose to enjoy it and be glad! I choose to see the good! (Romans 8:28) Spring will eventually come and bring colors that will warm our hearts. The painting of the single rose below will suffice until the real thing!
