The scriptures and the devotionals that popped up this week
all point the way to our preparation for spring.
Make way for the new!!
It will come, won’t it?
I am more than ready for our ice (used to be snow) piles
to melt and allow the bulbs to wake up and begin to sprout!
This is what the Lord says,
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing…”
But, I do remember those former things!!
These were the last of them from last spring.
I am ready to hang my spring wreath
and I am ready to “Spring Up!”
my clocks tonight in preparation for
Daylight Savings Time.
I am ready to keep that time schedule
all year round to give us more hours of daylight
in our waking hours. How about you?
Get ready for a sunny Sunday!
I am ready for more sunshine.
How about you?
I love it when my friend, Lisa,
sends me photos of her sunrises
above the lake near her home in North Carolina.
I’m ready for a ride on “Lucille”
(our redheaded ATV who is a “Ball”)
into the springtime wildflowers
on our mountain trails around here.
Right now, looks like that’s a couple months away.
This year we won’t have our TazE
(our beloved Boston Terrier
traveled over the Rainbow Bridge
last December. We miss her!)
to keep us company on our rides.
She was sure a great trail companion!
So, get ready, my friends.
Make way for the realization of
those dreams once more
when we can take that ride again!
But, will springtime ever come to Montana?
For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born,
and a time to die;
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill,
and a time to heal (that’s my time right now);
a time to break down,
and a time to build up;
a time to weep,
a time to laugh (that’s ALWAYS now!);
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance (let’s do!!);
a time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace (let’s do that, too),
and a time to refrain from embracing; …
May your storms diminishLove and Lotsa Hugs,
and your sunshine increase;
May your troubles decrease
and your joys abound.
May your eyes clearly see
the beauty all around you.
God bless you, my friends.
Make way for those blessings!
They are coming!
P.S. My eyes are healing after the cataract surgery last week. Thank you for your prayers. The farsighted vision is bright and clear – beautiful colors. Single lens replacement instead of the multiple variety was my only option. It has to do with the age of these tired 83 year old eyes and the shape they were in. But I’m not complaining. Another follow-up appointment is scheduled in 3 weeks. I’ll keep you posted. Thinking positively!
