I have been indoors for many months, and have seen the seasons change outside my window. I have missed the beautiful serenity the wild outdoors offers us. Oh, how I’ve longed for the sweet smell of pine and the methodical babbling of a brooklet of water! Soon the flowers will pop their heads out of the ground, and everything will turn green. Spring is my favorite time of year when everything is green and freshly budding. Once all the land dries up, imagine how green it will be. It’s like our reward for surviving a record breaking winter. I am not going to miss the gift of nature this year, even if it’s just outside my door! Give all your gratitude to God for the abounding beauty we have been blessed with!
