Linking up with Emily today to unwrap my gift.

It was a quick reminder early this morning of His faithfulness. A blooming tree in my neighbor's yard. I am not sure that I have ever longed for a spring to come more than I have this year. It has been a cold, hard winter for the body and the soul. I suppose it's due in part to the age of my children. It's a busy age, and though it's lovely, it is also tiring. So this year, though I attempt patience, it looks more like excitement. Excitement that the long days of summer are drawing nearer. Excitement that the bare trees are stirring inside because their Creator is starting to whisper "wake up", and so they obey. Excitement that very soon my kids will be chasing fireflies again in the summer evenings in the backyard, and this year Thomas will be old enough to try and keep up. Excitement that my God choice my broken heart to take up residence in, and that this morning He sent me flowers on a budding tree...just because He loves me.
