The last morning dew faded from the newly growing blades of grass, as six year old Tammy Walker awoke with bright, vivid blue eyes that sparkled like a recent polished diamond. Today was the first day of Spring, Tammy was very excited about Spring, for the young one knew that with every bare branch left by Winters harsh cold, new life would form from a tiny bud then blossom into a new creation.
Tammy hurried about her room getting her clothing ready to dress for the new day that had dawned. Little giggles escaped her lips as she tugged on her tennis shoes. She couldn’t wait to go outside with her mommy for their morning walk. It was the best part of the morning besides breakfast.
Tammy ran down the stairs calling her mother Sarah, whom was waiting for her by the kitchen door “Ready sweetheart?” she asked as she helped her daughter into the light weight jacket. It may be spring, however the air was still chilly. “I sure am Mommy!” Tammy exclaimed as she took her mother by the hand. Together they stepped outside into the bright sunshine. Songs of nature filled their ears as the birds serenaded them as they began the walk down the driveway. All around them the promise of new life was evident from the budding leaves on the trees, or the first little bloom of daisies.
Turning to gaze upon her mother she replied softly. “God made the Spring, didn’t he Mommy?” Her little face seemed to brighten as she spoke of his name, then added happily “ When I get to Heaven, I am going to Thank him for all the Springs he sent and how pretty it makes everything. “Sarah paused in her stride and knelt down giving her little girl a big hug “ He sure did love. “ she said then hugged her once more.
That night after putting Tammy to bed, Sarah knelt on her knees within her own room and prayed to God. “Dear God, thank you for each blessing that spring time brings and allowing me and Tammy to share in its glory with you.”
Sarah finished her prayers knowing that spring time would bring an array of blessings to them both.
