Tomorrow is the first official day of Spring. By the way things looked outside earlier this week, I just knew that someone had the wrong month on their calendar! Building a fire in the fireplace last night and crawling under the cover to get warm is not my way of welcoming in the new season.
But I have done everything outside to get ready for a good spring. The weed killer is down, the fertilizer is spread and the mulch for the beds is on the docket to do soon. But I just can’t seem to get out and do what I want in the yard. It has either been too cold or wet to do much except see the grass blades (that are much greener than last year) try to outdo each other. If it ever warms up, I will need a thrasher for the lawn! Forget the push mower!
Waiting is hard! I was reminded this past Friday by a good pastor that this is just what the Lord wants us to do before he blesses us. Don’t forget that this is exactly what the disciples had to do after Easter before the days of Pentecost. History proves that it was worth the wait.
Lord, keep me patient enough not to forget that there is a reason for this waiting season. Good things are coming soon.
