I think it’s likely that I have and will write a Gratituesday post praising God for sunshine every April on my blog. But I won’t apologize for the redundancy. Or the repetitiveness. Or even for the fact that I have said it over and over again. Because the sun is shining again in Nebraska and I am SO THANKFUL!!!
Winter is lovely. Snow is fun. Sitting around the fireplace is cozy. Soups and stews are comforting. I love that God gives us seasons and all the beautiful changes that come with them. I’ve tried very hard not to be whiny about the cold, cloudy, sunless days that have lasted for several months in these parts. It’s all a part of what God gives us and whining doesn’t help me warm up one bit. :)
But well…I’m ready for a little Vitamin D in my life. I am ready to open up my house and let the sun shine in. And I can’t wait to get my hands in the soil.
Justus (11) brought me in a handful of my favorite lavender wild flowers today. He said, “Remember how I used to do this when I was little?” And then he dumped the wilting, yet beautiful little flowers in my lap. The sweetie.
Spring is here! The sun is shining again! (And I’m prepared for the fact that there may still be a snow storm or two before summertime, but I can deal with it.) I’m so thankful for the refreshing gift of sunshine!
