The Promise of Spring
Spring is on the move! It is so exciting to see the trees budding, the grass greening, and new life springing up everywhere. With this new life comes hope - hope of change, hope of growth.
I can see new life springing up in our family as vividly as I do outdoors. I have finally tackled some household tasks I just couldn't bring myself to face in the dreary wintertime. When the sun is shining I am a woman with a purpose! My spring is going to include some planting this year; I'm so excited for my first vegetable garden. I can't wait to show my kids how tiny seeds turn into huge plants that then produce food to eat. All of the patience and waiting and work produce good fruit. This is an excellent lesson for them (and for me). If I am patient and wait on God and do the work required of me, He will produce good fruit in my own life.
