"Spring Is Here?"

March 20th, 2009.
Officially, the first day of spring.
Here in Pittsburgh, PA it's 45 degrees,
overcast, and kind of drab... but then again
that's Pittsburgh 90% of the time. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

But even in the up and down temperatures that
each day brings, spring is in the picture. The trees are budding. The flowers are peeking through the ground. The birds are starting to
find nest mates. The grass is beginning to look
green again.

I long for warmer days. The opportunity to be outside and alive in the warmth of the sun.
IT'S COMING! I know it is.

Spring is when life is breathed back into the black and white of winter. And thankfully
God gives us a microcosm each March/April of His ability and desire to make all things
new again. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone,
the new has come!" 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV

Thank God He makes all things new.
