Spring is Coming

I know I'm in good company when I say I am SO ready for Spring to arrive.  Now that it's March, I can feel it joyfully coming right around the corner.  I refuse to share any more of my woes of winter, as I'm tired of hearing them myself!  Instead I am choosing to delight in the thoughts of blooming flowers, warm sunshine, and walks in flip flops.  I'm ready for the world to be green again!  I do, however, so appreciate all that can be learned through the changing of the seasons.  There is such purpose and intention in what the earth goes through.  And it's such a great metaphor for life.  I have felt several times in my life that I was waiting for spring to come, but surrendering to what God needed to do in me through the quiet rest of winter.  Here are some spring things for you to enjoy:

One of my favorite sermons about Spring from Crossroads in Cincinnati, part of a series on the seasons:

Spring (Great sermon - not your average preacher - just so you're prepared. :)

I love fresh flowers!!!  And I love the abundance of them in Spring!  I ran all over Louisville a couple days before my wedding finding gerberas like these for my bouquet!

The Farmer's Market is coming - yay!!!

I'm definitely looking forward to my belly and my maternity wardrobe growing this Spring!

I love this beautiful and powerful song, Spring is Coming, which is more of a prayer from my favorite, Steven Curtis Chapman:

Such fun things to look forward to! I love your reminder about how there is so much to learn through God's design of the seasons. It always feels so amazing to move beyond winter in life and into spring. :)
