When I woke up Sunday morning, I had a very serious conversation with myself.
Me: Get up! We need to get the garden ready for the plants!
Myself: It’s still cold!
Me: Wear a jacket! They say it’s going to get warmer later.
Myself: It’s still cold! It will always be cold! Plants don’t like cold!
Me: Get your bum off the bed and get a move on! I’ll make you a nice Filipino breakfast 🙂
Myself: I’m up! I’m hungry!
It did get warm enough to take the jacket off. And the sprouting and budding plants is enough to inspire me to get their bedding nice and cozy for them to rise from.
Spring, most definitely, is my favorite season. Not only because it is a lovely breather from the freezing Winter, but mainly because i find Spring so inspiring!
Spring reminds me how wonderful God is. Seeing how nature, God’s living creation, wakes up from the Winter slumber. The seemingly dead woody branches of trees and shrubs start to show buds of new life. Dried up leaves and brown stems enliven with color, rejuvenating the once dead scenery.
And just like all of God’s work, Spring awakening tells me that there is nothing that He throws at us that we cannot survive and rise above; not the fierce Winter, not problems nor trials and tribulation. God is good! We, like the plants, just need to learn to wake up from the stupor, raise our hands and thank Him for another sunshine, another quenching rain.
