Glorious Hints of Spring
Isn't it amazing how much beauty we can see when we are forced to slow down?
I honestly cried with frustration..in fact I've done it several times this last three weeks..because I couldn't 'do' what I needed (or was that wanted?) to do.
But I knew in my heart that the Lord knew just what I needed...to slow down.
Once I got over my little pity party...I began to truly listen...to reflect... to thank Him for this inconvenient... yet perfectly timed interruption to our lives.
Today I worshipped...often. I had plenty of time.
When is the last time that you can recall having plenty of time. It's easy. Just cut out the fluff.
Everything I do takes twice as long, so it seems odd to feel that I have excess time, but I do.
There are so many frivolous activities..time wasters.. that I can't do comfortably now. And there are many fun projects that I simply can't do. Sniff!
But I do have time to drink in the beauty of God's creation..and to admire his handiwork.
However busy you might be.....why not take a moment to sit quietly and reflect on God's goodness today.
A little walk or peek out the window might be just what the doctor ordered. :-)
Hey friends, Long time no see. :) Hubby and I feel that now would be a great time for me to begin blogging again.
Now that our family is all home and together and I've got TONS more time and lots of sewing projects and decorating to do, I'd like to get back in the swing of things.. and back in touch with all of you here at Comin' Home. :) I've truly missed you all.
It's a new season of life for me now.. perhaps the perfect time to pick up the pieces of Comin' Home.
This is a repost from last spring.. and the tulip tree looks exactly the same this spring as last. I brought the blossoms back to our home in the city last night. It's hard to believe life has changed so much since last spring. My wrist works perfectly and I have all the strength back too.
I can't wait to share the beauty of our new home and new life and new projects.. with you. <3 nbsp="" p="">3>
