I'm excited! Today I saw daffodils. This past weekend while walking the dogs I noticed that the flower stems were already growing. I couldn't believe it. Just two weeks ago there was still snow on the ground remaining from the extra snowy winter we experienced. While I enjoyed the beauty of the snow and the school cancellations, I have been eagerly anticipating spring. One of the joys of spring is watching the flowers bloom. I'm amazed how during the winter, a cold, dead season that life continues where I can't see it. So, in my personal life, do I believe that in the winter seasons that something is growing even when I can't see it? Do I enjoy every season of life? Can I find joy in every season? Paul says, "I have learned to be content with whatever I have." I pray that I am learning to be content with what I have and whatever season it is. So, today I find joy in daffodils.
