A New thing!

 Here I am looking out the window,  I see the sun shining, snow melting, and grass starting to appear in small patches all over my lawn. Yes!!! This is the time of year that all of us gardeners are yearning for.... that beautiful white fluffy stuff to go away and let new life appear. I know it is only February but hey this little tease Is a promise of whats to come. Yes we have just celebrated Valentines, finished our chocolates and are cleaning up the rose petals from our tables. Now it is time to get into this new year. My seed catalog arrived a few weeks ago and I am ready to go. That same window I am looking out of will soon be filled with little seeds trying to get their turn at life. Change, just as the seasons promise to come and go. This too will be a part of our life like it or not. All of this cold cover of snow has to melt and the sun has to warm the ground beneath before those beautiful blades of green grass and flashes of color appear from below. I love this passage below, a promise that I will hold onto. Enjoy the sunshine and anticipate the New coming to you this new year!!
See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.  Isaiah 43:19
