What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Glorious Spring!

It is the time of pink sunrises and waking up to a world enveloped in cloud; a time of red-winged blackbirds tsk, tsk, tsking us and crooning robins and peepers singing sleep songs at night.

Why, just yesterday while we were walking, a snake slithered past us in quite the little hurry (perhaps it was the handful of children clamoring about him?) and a woodchuck stood not 10 feet away, just watching.

It is the time of seedlings shedding their winter caps and stretching toward the sun; a time for dew covered leaves that miraculously turned green overnight, a time of the first sunburns and the last of the flannel sheets, of putting on dirt and the shedding of winter coats and shoes and of glorious COLOR!

Last night, I slept with the windows open in my bedroom. With all the lovely sounds of the country calling to one another and singing their lullabies, I didn't feel quite so alone.

Today it is expected to mid-80's here. 80's?!?!?!

What a magnificent, glorious, wonderful and unbelievable March!
