My wife and I sat together on the screen porch this morning and talked about all the signs of spring we could see outside. It’s been a long winter season in our lives as well. There are signs of spring everywhere!
A Blue bird! Sitting at the top of a spruce tree outside the window singing away. I grabbed the camera and proceeded to notice spring in the north land through the camera lens. I spent an hour of last daylight, took less than 250 steps and over 100 pictures,
With a constant eye on the furling clouds and peeking sun, I began to become aware. The details of spring, new growth and a challenge to my Soul. Can anyone see new growth in me or am I like the rocks in the field just getting older and taking up space.
Enjoy a few photos of spring taken within 60 steps of the front door. All photos taken the last hour of daylight May 11 2018. Truly, it’s all changed by now. Same sun, trees and all but I could take a million more pictures and not gain the exact same perspective. Click on one for an enlarged slide show.
Spring signs are bursting forth right through the tree bark. Blossoms are waving in the wind as I try for a still shot. It was not even 50 degrees out and the rabbit did not even try to run away.
Lord: Are there signs of new growth in my life? Or, am I like the thorn bush still hanging on to last years berries?
The fast racing formations often remind me of the spiritual forces unseen to us. So much is beyond our control yet I am challenged to grow daily in my closeness to God.
The sun sets as the sky is clearing. All is well with my soul.
What season of life are you going through? Are there signs of spring?
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
