In the springtime, I become more aware of my physical state.  I get outside more.  I work in the yard, walk, ride the bike more.  The activity highlights my physical shortcomings.  I used to be in better shape.  As I age, things are wearing out.  My body (and mind) just doesn’t work as well as it once did.  But I’ll have no pity party in the springtime.  I can still see the trees pop to life.  I can see and smell the flowers.  My legs can sustain me for a walk in the woods.  I can still hear the birds singing their song.  I am not as good as I used to be, but I am so much better than I could be.  In the springtime, I realize anew the wonders of God’s creation, and how truly blessed I am to live, experience, and be a part of it.

  1. Every Spring I am amazed and grateful that the Lord’s favor to still be alive as His earth comes back to life.
