Spring has Sprung!

Rejoice. Easter Sunday. Wonderful weather. Fabulous flowers. The world feels fresh and new. Oh how I love Spring. (I wonder if my March birthday affects how I feel about the season?)

So often, I miss Texas. Every time I go back to visit, I want to move home — to Austin, Longhorn country. Then I fly back to DC, drive through the green parkways lined with flowers, commute to work each day in view of our Nation’s monuments…and I’m thankful I live here.

During this time of the year, I thank God for the little things here in DC — the daffodils, cherry blossoms, dogwood trees, and tulips. (Though, I could do without the pesky weeds that thrive in my yard.) 😉

Yes, it’s a WONderful life!

In honor of Easter Sunday, I leave you with this:

1 Peter 1: 23-25

For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
“All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.”
And this is the word that was preached to you.
