Spring Fever

I'm not really deeply enamored with St. Patrick's Day (Sorry, Sasha) but at the moment, I just have to keep reminding myself that the world will turn green again. After several blissful days of weather in the 50s, I'm just not ready to go back to the real February. So I shan't. I'll keep believing that Winter is merely taking its last, gasping breaths before Spring descends upon us.

And hopefully, it won't snow into April this year.

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland

O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind? ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

See? There's plenty of hope for us all.

Even if snow falls again, I am content that for a time I saw grass and warmer weather.

Hi, just hopped over from flowerpatch, totally wanted to recommend a song called "I used to do it too" by Lecrae. I'll warn you it's a Christian Rap song, kind of offbeat, but extremely catchy. Something about your profile info propelled me to tell you about it.

oh my, the Holy Spirit is at work, strangely in the form of sharing rapper music ;) to answer your question i saw in your profile info the quote about being changed and that song just popped into my head. not one in the habit of sharing Christian rap songs but. it. just. seemed.right. this sure teaches me to be in more constant touch with listening to His voice and following His guiding ways, no matter how bizarre they may seem..would love to hear more about your Lecrae stories, "Don't waste your life" is hands downo our family favorite
