Spring, sun, and warming days have come to Kansas. On a visit last week, the transition from winter’s bare branches to spring’s color was evident and so fascinating to this California girl (where sun is pretty much a constant). The trees wait for green to sprout, but on bushes the green unfurls.
This week in Kansas we enjoyed the sun, taking long walks around the neighborhood and in parks. It’s obvious that spring is arriving, but the starkness of winter is alongside the new life.
Isn’t this a picture of life for most of us? Troubles have stripped some branches bare, but love and warmth and care nurture budding beauty. Life holds the promise of the new, the potential for blooming. A storm may strip the young blooms, but more are on the way.
How about you? How is spring looking where you live? Does life hold some welcome budding joys?
