Springtime Spills into New Beginnings



I have been out of the country for the last three springtimes.  I was reminded this morning on my way to work how beautiful changing seasons can be.  I was impressed by trees framed with a halo of red from new buds.   I heard birds singing songs I had forgotten.  My heart was so full, it spilled out of my eyes!


Springtime – synonymous with new beginnings.  This year is a new beginning for me, now that I am back in the United States again.  I miss my friends in Taiwan a lot – sometimes so much it spills out of my eyes.  But, I know that for this chapter, I am to be here in America – in Northwest Arkansas.  I’m thankful.

New beginnings – what will start this year in a new way for me?  I know that God has given me so much this year – many new things.  I want to ask Him to help me to see with new eyes this year.    Each day is a gift.  Each person is a treasure.   Change, although at times challenging, can result in growth for our good.  I don’t want to become accustomed to people, things, and changes around me.


What has this season brought for you?  I would enjoy hearing about some of your new beginnings.
