Feeling Buried?


As we drag through the last days of Winter, it is easy to sometimes feel as buried as the earth is right


now in snow! Sometimes it just feels as though there is more to do than we can ever accomplish!...


And even when we try our hardest, it seems like itís one step forward and two back!



But in a day or two, this snow that buries the earth is going to start to disappear, and little by little the


days start to get longer and the sunshine brighter!  Soon the wild flowers will start to appear, and the


daffodils and tulips!


Then the beautiful flowering trees--Redbud and Dogwood and 


Crabapple, and suddenly-- 


What a wonderful gift from our creator!


He will send Springtime into your soul, too


Winter is perhaps Godís resting or slowing down time not just for the earth, but also for us. It isnít all bad


to take a good look at ourselves and see where we are falling short of our goals....but


There seems to be so much more winter than we need this year!

It seems to me that 


Springtime is actually the beginning of the new year!


On January 1st, we make New Yearís Resolutions, and we sort of hope that we can keep them. but come


Springtime,  we ACTUALLY have hope! God shows us what He can do!


He sends us Springtime at the end of the long Winter to make us realize that -- 


With God all things are possible.

Feeling buried?


Itís time to dig out!




God will give you the shovel


if you ask!


He wants us to ask!


God is a Companion with us for each today and a traveler with us in every tomorrow.                                     †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C.
