In Retrospect

I wasn’t sure how I was going to write this time but….here goes; and this is in three parts because I have been doing a lot of thinking…..

First…….a picture, because pictures say so much!

We are still in the Spring season, in fact~early Spring. As it’s not that much past Easter I’m still thinking about Jesus’ resurrection; and to me that’s a correlation to this season, the Spring in ones soul when it first awakens to the new life within when one becomes “born again.” Can’t see it yet but everything becomes alive, fresh and new! Everything is going to change through processing this new life even if one is aware of it or not. This is just like the new first blades of grass or plants when they spring up from the ground.

Buds on the trees come forth putting out fragrant blossoms of something promising in Dogwoods, Cherry Blossoms, and Lilac. Those are just some of them that come out earlier as well as lawns and tendrils of Ivy that curl around everything. It’s so beautiful! I love the Morning Glorys opening up early in the morning and when I’m out walking they seem to be saying; “Hello”; “Good Morning!” to me.

In all of this I see the promise of new life everywhere. I can’t help but think of my awakened soul in the “promise” of my new season. Whether I’m brand new in my faith, been around the block a few times or I call myself “seasoned” it seems to me that no matter how long I’ve been in process that that opportunity of Spring always comes along. I’m grateful though that it does because I can begin again, no matter what stage or age, as the saying goes. So I’m thinking….in this season of RISING UP, this resurrection if you will; what am I going to do with it? I want to… for some reason this year to make the most of it! I’m feeling it!

Another picture will add to this contemplation…..credit goes to Heather Ford and this looks yummy! And I’m going to pause right here…..for Part II is coming up!

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best part of my life and learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should so I will take them up on it and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 chronological years old. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 2 Great-granddaughters. I am currently staying a while with my youngest Daughter and family before I head to AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and when I get back to AZ I will re-activate my Gym membership.
