Just for a Moment

It’s almost 60 degrees out this morning.  The windows in our house are open wide, letting in sweet spring.  The birds melodious notes are floating on the cool breeze and the froggies down at the pond are chirping to their mates.  It’s glorious!

I yearn to hang out multiple loads of laundry, but there’s an undulating rain heading our way (again).  My oldest son pointed, dejectedly to the computer screen to show me a huge bunch of green with turquoise bands of snow behind it.  In his next breath he stated with much remorse that  he wouldn’t get to enjoy this brief taste of spring because he had to do school.  I glanced at him and said, “Go! You have an hour to enjoy this!” 

In a flash all four of them scurried out the door.

We’ll do school later.






Spring seems long coming this year.  We disked the garden and then it rained.  Actually more like poured.  It has done that off and on for two weeks.  There has been no gardening activity since.  I long to get my lettuce, spinach, radishes, turnips, and kohlrabi into the ground, but that’s just not going to happen any time soon.  So, I garden on an old card table set in front of our sliding glass doors.  It will suffice for now!

Such anticipation I have for long warm days when I can sink my fingers into sun warmed dirt, sit back on my heels and be shown again and again how Awesome my God is!

Until then I will praise Him for the beauty that is shown in His creation even on these in between days!
