Look around you at the beauty of the earth waking up from the winter sleep.
Springtime is my favorite time of year, I love the spring! My next favorite is the fall! In the spring the flowers pop up and cover the fields with colors of blue, red, orange, purple, pink, yellow and white. It is like a colorful carpet. The flowering trees have budded out and are showing off in an array of pinks, whites and reds. How beautiful to see the new beginnings, the new growth and a reminder of life all around us.
Take a closer look and you can see the birds have returned and pairing up to begin their new family for this year. The hummingbirds are plentiful and flitting around the feeders and marking their territory. Colorful butterflies are springing from one flower to another looking for nectar. I have even seen a red fox this spring, not an animal that I see very often. A real treat.
I believe it is God’s gift to us and a reminder of His goodness. Seeing His glory shinning all around us is truly a gift of joy. Yes, God is the wonderful, mighty creator of heaven and earth and He has given us the blessing of seeing His creation in action!
If you need a picker upper, if you need something to divert your thoughts from all the problems of life. Then, I encourage you to go outside into the sunshine and experience God’s goodness experience His presence. Turn your thoughts to Psalm 16:11 “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Be encouraged this day!
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, now is the time! Please pray this prayer: Heavenly Father, I believe that Your Son, Jesus, gave His life on the cross to take away my sins. I also believe that He rose again from the dead so that I might be forgiven of my sins and made righteous through faith in Him. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior and choose to follow Him. I thank you now that I am your child. Amen.
