This is the time of year when my hopes get the best of me. A sunny day suddenly appears, and all thoughts of snow and winter are far behind. Even if the temperature is all over the place, it’s the first day of Spring, after all!
Do you see springtime in the blue sky also?
This week when my husband and I drove over to our favorite spot by the lake, I needed to feel the breeze on my face. So my ever-present winter hat came off for a minute, and the scene before me called out the spring in my heart:
Wisp of Sky
The sky breeze calls soft
Fluffy streak of vapor float
Wisp and blow aloft
My mind can feel like the fluff of vapor, flitting and floating to places not planned by me. But maybe the floating has a purpose. What if there are new thoughts that God wants to birth in me? What if springtime is meant to come to my heart?
Spring breeze awaken
Blow over cold barren land
Stir my heart to live
“This is what God the Lord says—
the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out,
who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it,
who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it“
My days are not aimlessly floating, without purpose, this I know. His plans for me are moving along in a timing set by Him. He breathes His Life into me,
and He will breathe new life into
if you can look up to the sky
and see His Love written there.
