Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
If you step outside, you can feel it.
Breathe in deep.
There’s a sense of crisp newness in the air.
The bluebonnets, our state flower, are in full bloom. The Texas Mountain Laurel’s blooms, with their unique grape scent, have already come and gone, replaced by the Wisteria, which suddenly seems to be on every street corner. The side of all the roadways are littered with every sort of wildflower,waves of blue mixed in with every color flower imaginable. The grass is vibrant green, the trees are lush with new leaves. Cardinals are twittering about. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Things that looked dead in the winter are springing back to life. There is a sense of hope hanging in the air. A sense of expectancy. Anything is possible!
The whole earth cannot help but declare the glory of God with its magnificent display of new blooms.
I can’t get enough of the outdoors right now. The kids have taken to doing their homework outside, just so they can soak up this gorgeous weather. I always wonder why we do school in the spring? We should have a long spring break, and instead school during the hot summer months when no one wants to be outside!
Grumpiness seems to fall away in the spring.
People are smiling more, their steps seem lighter.
Energy seems to be more abundant. Forgiveness seems easier outdoors.
How can you hold on to a frown with all this new beauty surrounding you?
Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed,
and get a new heart and a new spirit.
Why will you die, people of Israel?
