Springing Up!


Ok all you winter-time-whiners; there’s good news for you. Spring officially arrives on March 21 this year but there’s a hint on the air if you listen closely.
You have to be an early morning riser to notice such things so you long-winter’s-nappers are reaping what you sow!
For the last few days when I get up early there is the tell-tale chirp of birds in the air that is distinctively absent in the depths of winter. Spring is coming. It’s the first sign every year.
Lift up your heads, get out of bed, take off that stocking cap you’re sleeping in and listen! God is waking up the earth!

Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

I'm up at 5:30am, I haven't heard anyting but the dog's yipping next door - however I will take your word for it and listen more intently tomorrow morning.
I do hope those little birds like snow since we're expecting at least 6 inches tomorrow.
Yea Spring.

those are not chirps of Spring...
they are the screams for help of physically challenged birds
unable to fly to Florida.
