When I was having my quiet time this morning, I read a verse in Psalms that I thought was a good one for us to think on at this time of year. "How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in You." Psalm 31:19
I liked this verse because it reminded me of spring. Winter is often bleak and barren. We grow weary from the lack of beauty. We forget that goodness is stored up, waiting to burst forth at its appointed time.
The same is true for us as well. Sometimes our lives are bleak and barren. Sometimes there is winter in our souls. Dear one, do not lose heart. God is storing up goodness.
Just like the flowers, sometimes we need a winter in order to come back bigger and stronger than before. Spring does come. It requires a little Sonshine.
Now for menus. Hmmm... Maybe this week we'll experiment with some recipes I've clipped and saved in my handy, dandy notebook. Oh no, shouldn't have said that. Now I have an overwhelming urge to sing "Here's the Mail". I'm kinda glad my days of preschool television viewing are done.
