SPRING IS GODíS ANSWER TO MANíS HOPE

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-- 

ITíS SPRING!

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!

 

and

 

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.
