The first day of spring is something I look forward to all winter.
Spring is baby ducklings, chicks, kittens, sprouts and buds and the early flowers turning the gray dull sky of winter into the blue sky of summer. Its the old crusty snow retreating into the ground to make way for new blades of grass. Its about the rebirth of creation, like the death and resurrection. The old goes away and the new is born of the earth, fresh and green. Its about babies of every species being born.
Its about potential. Its like New Year’s Day, with no pressure for a resolution. Its just you and nature and the awakening in your heart.
Here in my neck of the woods we are expecting our first rain tonight, like waking up to a clean house after a winter of hibernation. The dust and mold and dirt from the snow will disappear and the new growth will appear, and take over.
The potential to grow; it is something granted to each of us regardless of our age, gender, income, or anything else really. If you are alive, you have the potential to become more than you are now. You have the potential to learn new things, new crafts, new emotions, new affirmations. You have the potential to be anyone you want to make yourself into. You have a heart and a brain and a body. You get to choose what you do with them.
I pray that you will choose the positive, the good, the smiles and the hugs.
I hope that you will choose freedom, forgiveness, optimism and joy.
I want you to choose that voice inside you that sings at the top of your lungs every time a good song comes on the radio.
Choose you, choose love, but always choose wisely.
What will you choose for your life today? Happy Spring!
