Spring essence


This has been an unusually early spring for us. As I walk my dog Gracie I am delighted to notice the smells of the season. With the tulip trees, red buds, and forsythia blooming, the air smells like a freshly stocked floral store. Neighbors are cutting grass for the first time creating a backdrop of the sounds of warmth. The mere drinking in of the spring essence stirs renewal in my soul.

It is much the same way when we indulge our soul in self-examination and notice that the darkness and sadness have cleared a way. With the coming of spring and new life, let us blow away that which no longer serves us so we can create a fresh path for our year. Bloom and be blessed!

“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24

  1. I live in Ontario, Canada. We’ve had a strange winter—pretty much snowLESS. The last few days have been in the twenties. Absolutely balmy and too warm even for a sweater. I notice the lawns are showing signs of greening as well as farmer’s fields with abundant weeds. However, no-one’s had to cut the grass yet.

    Nice post.
