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.
