10 March 2010

The sun was shining and the day looked promising. A little girl was gladdened to find that the weather had warmed. The earth seemed refreshed to see the sun’s shining face again, in hopes that new life would begin springing from it’s soil.

A bright and cheery day it was, and so out the little girl went in search of something very, very special.

It was a bit like an adventure, searching here and there for the treasure. A treasure that when found, would bring a bright smile to her face. A treasure that gave hope for a lovelier tomorrow.

Exploring she went, looking high and low. But she could not find what she so eagerly sought.

Just as she began to think that she just might have to wait another day before finding what she sought, out of the corner of her eye she spotted a tiny patch of green.

She hurried over to where the long-searched for treasure was. That little patch of green brought a bright and beautiful smile to her face.

The happy beam of sunshine that shone through those little green stubs made her think about the flowers that would one day bloom, giving her happiness in knowing that Spring was truly on its way.

Nothing said Spring quite as well as the little green knobs which peaked up from the leaf-covered soil.

Finding that little bit of new life was worth the searching and worth the wait . . .
. . . and because of all the waiting and searching, the finding was all the more sweet.

    Beautiful Emily! I’m looking forward to Spring so much! This winter was mostly cold and rainy, so bright green Spring will be like a breath of fresh air!

    I hope you and your family are doing well!

    With much love,

    I guess that’s why March always makes me think green is my favorite color all of the sudden. :) What a refreshing sight! Now I’m counting down the days until I can go violet hunting… Thanks for sharing your first little bit of Spring!!

    Beautiful Emily!

    I wish we knew for sure if Spring was really here in WI. We’ve had BEAUTIFUL weather for the past couple days. Like in the 60’s!! We were eating lunch outside and going for walks and totally enjoying the sunshine. Now we’re supposed to get 7 inches of snow this weekend. :( I wish spring would hurry up and stay here for good! LOL

    Isn’t it a wonderful ritual to go out in the early Spring and find those green signs of life? I’m so thankful God has given us seasons, aren’t you?
