Over the weekend, I turned another year older. It’s hard to believe just how fast time flies, but here I am, moving towards one of those big milestone birthdays. Hmmm.
Well, given the alternative, I’ll take my birthday any time. Since I was able to celebrate with a lot of my family this year, it felt extra special.
Even though we didn’t get the usual sunny weather California is well-known for, even in winter, I missed another snowfall at home. I’ve lucked out so far this year, and really haven’t touched my snow shovel. Well, that’s fine with me.
Personally, the best part of winter is knowing that spring is just over the horizon.While the snow is still on the ground, I know that my early spring flowers are already working hard and preparing for the warmth of the spring sun. Even now, there are small but perceptible signs that winter won’t be with us forever.
I wonder if heaven will be like an eternal spring? I sure hope so. Well, that’s something I’ll just have to pray about.
