welcome spring...

today it is 70 degrees in johnson city.  yesterday it was 50...somehow that already seems like a distant memory...


a couple of weeks ago lucy and i took advantage of our first glimpse of spring weather {even though i knew it wouldn't last} and planted some flowers...


2 days later she was making snow angels in our yard...
2 weeks later...despite the fact that it has still been pretty chilly around here...everywhere we look spring is fighting hard to break through...


not unlike my heart that has burst open after being buried in a hard, barren ground the past few months.  sometimes life brings change and uncertainty and tasks that seem insurmountable but God keeps tending to us and eventually the result is a life that is more beautiful and blossoming than it ever was before.  welcome spring...


Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! ~2 corinthians 5:17

oh...and on a side note...we are pretty happy to be back home with 'da-da'...
