Spring SalvationThursday, March 17, 2011
Spring is so close. On days like these, if feels like it has arrived. But I don't want to get my hopes up. However, with the glorious sunshine on my shoulders and warming my cheeks, it has been hard to concentrate on motherhood, writing, and obviously...blogging. All I want to do it jump up and shout, "This is the day that the Lord had made...I will rejoice and be glad in it!" Remember that song from when you were a child in that stuffy children's church room that smelled like crayola and mildew? Or was that just the basement classroom I was stuck in? ;)
This week, I am happy to let regular blog posting fall to the side. I'll shelve the manuscript for a few days (which works our perfectly when you have writer's block), and I'll replace it with blowing bubbles, throwing rocks into the creek, and taking pictures of my children running in a maze of still-bare-trees. It's the season of new adventures...new birth...renewal...and that sense that you can draw in a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh, cool air that makes everything better.
Spring is a time for giggling like a child, and the season always comes just in the nick of time.
