Summer was hot here in Big Sandy. But it was nice! The lake was perfect for swimming in.

Fall was gorgeous. The leaves turned to brilliant colors of orange and yellow and lime, and then they covered the ground. It truly was lovely. I remember going for a walk one day – it was just like walking through a painting.

Winter, though cold, was nice as well. The bare trees . . . frost in the morning . . . hot drinks in the office . . . AND this year we were blessed with good dousing of snow . . . Winter was nice . . .

But there is just  s o m e t h i n g  about SPRING.

I love the grass that grows so fresh along the roadsides and in the field – Grass that hasn’t yet been burned by the heat of the sun and grows in that brilliant shade of green that seems almost illuminated from the inside.

The trees are the same way. What in winter were skeletons of branches overhanging the rolling backroads here are quickly becoming canopies of sparkling, lime-tinted new leaves.

Other trees are getting “a word in edgewise” by bursting out in flower first. I love it. BTW . . . I think if I could be a tree, I’d be a cherry tree – Gotta adore those blossoms!! :)

And the air is cool – not too hot, not too cold. And maybe it will rain. I love a good rain shower . . .

And don’t EVEN get me started on Garden Centers (like at Lowes or Home Depot or Walmart or ANYWHERE) – talk about temptation!!?? Somebody was pretty smart to put all those blooming flowers in one place, all bunched together, and for SALE too! Wowsers . . .

Yep . . . There is just s o m e t h i n g about SPRING.

A brand new start . . . In brilliant colors . . . It’s a song for your eyes to see . . .

Thank You, Father!
