I love Spring!

Well, I’ve been a bit quiet lately. Winter can do that to me. It’s easy to get into the doldrums without even trying! But – if you’re like me – you’re probably thrilled to see Spring arrive. I know I am! EVERYTHING seems to brighten for me this time of year – my senses become more alive, my smiles and giggles are more frequent and my energy just seems to soar!

Spring is here – my absolute favorite time of the year! As I sit and look outside, I can’t help but notice that the large magnolia tree in our backyard is starting to get little blooms. That tree is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen when it’s in full bloom, and it’s so nice to see those little pinkish buds. They kinda make me smile – almost like little noses peeking out! LOL!

Then, appropriately, I read: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” II Corinthians 5:17-18 How true!

I love Spring in the Midwest because the sun shines more, the birds begin chirping, the daytime hours are longer, and everything seems to be coming alive. Of course, one of my absolute favorite holidays is right smack in the middle of Spring too – Easter! Celebrating the life and resurrection of my Lord on Easter is a definite high point!

Spring is just a great time for me to feel renewed and rejuvenated! Work always picks up this time of year and I am able to get out and see more friends and people I care about. There’s even a getaway or two. All are great things to make me feel even more alive! And, now I’m working out with Zna Trainer, I’m getting a new body from the inside, out! (VERY cool!) I’ve started doing more things for my health – eating better, exercising more and taking the time I need for me. I am thankful for this time of renewal and growth.

You know, it’s funny how a little thing like a change in the date or weather can affect me so much. I mean, I would love to have an attitude of Spring every day of the year! And with Jesus as my Savior, there’s no reason in the world I can’t! I can start fresh every day. Wow, how cool is that?! I hope you’ll join me today. Make it a GREAT one as you seek to do something new and special – get rejuvenated and move forward in your life. YOU CAN DO IT!

Love & blessings,
