I love Springtime!

To experience this beautiful season for the first time after some 30-plus years of life does something to a person's soul. Everything that's written about it is true. It does give you hope. It symbolizes new beginnings. It brings joy to weary hearts (and bones, too!), especially after a long, dreary winter. When I see those tiny buds coming out of trees and shrubs and flowers appearing everywhere my heart swells up with thankfulness and praise for the Master Designer and Maker of these things!

I walk from my house to the train station everyday when I go to work and I love it when the cool morning air and the sunlight greet me. I love to hear the birds sing as if they're telling me it's springtime! Each day is different. And it always surprises me to see the bare trees of winter come to life with tiny buds of leaves and flowers. The next thing I know those buds become full-grown leaves! It's so wonderful to see the naked tree branches begin to take on new foliage with different shades of greens, dark reds, maroons, yellows, whites and lavenders. Spring has sprung indeed!

All of God's creation is beautiful. All the works of His hands are marvelous! What the Bible says is true: that no man has any excuse not to know that there is God. Just to look at all creation and nature itself clearly points to a Creator. How can anyone miss it? 

"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse." -Romans 1:20

Springtime maybe short and sweet but hope is eternal. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to experience one of His perfect creations. I lived all my life in a tropical country where spring is unheard of and then we moved to Chicago. After living here for almost seven years now, I still marvel at the wonders that springtime brings with it. And I think I will never grow tired of it, ever. I guess that's what hope is all about. It gives light to darkness. It lifts out the gloom. It clears the cobwebs of bleakness. It gives us reason to move forward.

And moving forward I am! Summer, here I come!


  1. I lived somewhere tropical too for a short while, and I remembered missing the changes in season. Winter always seems to be the most noticed season missing, but you are right, without it we couldn't have spring!

  2. I'm so sorry it took me along time to acknowledge your comment on here. I was fixing the comments settings when I happened to see it. Oh well, what's 2 and half months between friends. lol!
    Thanks for the comment!
