I moved into my first house in December. The day that I moved into the house we had a snow storm. The house was situated on 2 acres of land with a wooded area behind it. I had little or no idea what the yard looked like.
In fact when I first looked at the house it was in the late fall. The leaves had
fallen off the trees and grass had that dull green fall type appearance to it All the flowers in the yard had already bloomed and were now awaiting the first frost of the year. The yard was covered with leaves. In fact everything in the yard had that fall drab look about it. I had no idea what awaited me in the spring.
As the days grew warmer and warmer, the snow began to melt; the yard began to take on a life all its own. First the crocuses appeared, then the daffodils came forth, the forsythia glowed with its vibrant yellow color, the trees burst forth with new life and a bluebird made an appearance in the yard. Yes spring was here just like God said it would be. The winter suddenly vanished away and spring had now appeared. But for me it was a spring that I will always cherish. I fact I remember coming home from work and in being in awe at the new life that appeared in the yard. It was the most wonderful spring I have ever had.
That spring change forever my view of God’s creation. I see spring a season of new life and new beginnings. But I also see winter as a necessary part of life. Because without the winter seasons in our lives; where everything seems to be dormant, we would never appreciate the beauty of spring with its new beginnings. We would take the preciousness of spring for granted.
