Springtime

I went for my walk in our neighborhood today and there is no doubt about it; spring is here. The grass is greening up, the daffodils are in full bloom, and many of our trees are in bud. Our family is feeling energized by the warmer weather and sunshine. We are taking full advantage of it by tackling some much needed yard work and trimming. Paul Burton has been helping during the day and Paul comes home at night to continue making improvements. With all of the limbs and brush now on the woodpile, we are thinking about taking one evening this weekend to sit around the fire.

Although both girls have infections they can't seem to shake, we have had a reprieve when it comes to doctor visits. Therefore I have been able to get to some spring cleaning and stay with it until the job is done. Kathryn joined in and helped me wash windows yesterday. It was very satisfying to accomplish that task and today we are drawn to the windows just to look through them as they twinkle.

Wherever you are today, may you find great satisfaction in the work God has planned for you. And if you live in Michigan, hang in there, spring will arrive in a few more weeks!
