C'est la Vie: Two Seasons, One Week

I can't help but mention the irony of this week. Technically, it is still winter. Up until today, it has felt like spring. Spring starts tomorrow, and we'll be celebrating with a thick blanket of snow on the ground. As we all say around here, "That's Colorado for you." The funniest part is that it doesn't seem to phase kids at all.

My daughter woke up as excited as ever that it was snowing. She immediately capitalized on the situation and asked for some hot chocolate with her breakfast. I caved. It was a good morning. The change of the seasons always remind me of the Bible verse (it may remind you of a popular song from the 60's too) that says, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1) Even when spring arrives under a frosting of white, the flowers will still bloom, the grass will turn green, the clouds will roll away, and the birds will still sing.

It's nice to know that there is a rhythm to life. After winter comes the spring, and then summer. Summer turns to fall, and fall fades into winter. Then it all starts over again. When our life seems out of control, it's nice to be reminded that there is a God in control of the universe and we can count on Him to take care of us. He does, after all, make those seasons just for us.

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
