I’m in the season of waiting and watching. Waiting for the cold days to become warm, the bare trees to blossom.
During these moments, I am anxious and excited, knowing the winter is a time of death for something in my life to come to an end. Perhaps a relationship I thought was worth pursuing, a job, a book idea, even a sinful habit.
Now spring is in full bloom–a time for new beginnings. I am filled with fresh hope and vibrancy like the buds and blossoms brightening the days.
As I watch buds open, flowers bloom and pedals fall, I expect good things to lie ahead because this spring, which seemed to take a long time coming, is the opportunity to see God initiate new things in not only me, but all who believe.
Are you watching and waiting?

I have similar feelings of faith. Having experienced God’s rejuvenation and renewal on many levels and occasions, I also look forward to the new things God is going to do in answer to my prayers.
Spring is a time for new beginnings or to look at things afresh with new eyes. Here I think we are trying to skip spring and head dead on in to the scorch of summer.
Seems like in the past few years, spring does last long and summer comes quickly.
Great photos! If feels like Spring will not make up her mind about staying. I’m ready for short sleeves and pictures and sunshine. Today has been anything but that.
I was so desperate for spring, ever time I saw blossoms I snapped pictures.
Oh I have an iPad full of blurry but well intentioned pictures that I took the last nice dry day we had. Seems like months ago, but it was last week. This Spring has not been fun!
I saw a butterfly…watching and waiting.
I am!!! Praise Him, I am.
