Spring is a Charmer

Living in San Diego means Spring is already here.

Spring is magic.  I remember growing up in Illinois and being amazed with the change of it all.

One night you go to sleep without leaves on the trees.  They are just naked and gray and shaking away with the wind.


Buds everywhere.
Green Sprouts of life.


The air changes and the drum of winter turns into a happy, spiffy little beat of Spring.

Legs come out of hiding.
Hands are held without gloves between.

Everything is anew

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.  ~Virgil A. Kraft

I can't help but dance more, sing more, love a little bit harder.

Thank you Spring.
Thank you Lord.

I love you San Diego for bringing it to me so soon.

  1. We're getting a taste of spring around here too :)
    Not quite like San D, but close!
    No coats around here! And we've gotten to play outside everyday for the last 4 days!
