Happy first week of spring everyone!
Here’s to fresh blooms, freshly cleaned homes, and pulling out our colorful wardrobes! I’m tired of wearing my bulky sweaters, let’s bust out those flouncy sundresses and rejoice! I guess that means I should probably go shave my legs huh? Just kidding!
What are some of your favorite parts of spring?
I always get excited to see the grass start changing colors first, to see those new blades popping up brings anticipation and excitement for the change of season. And it might seem crazy but I always get this wild hair to deep clean my house and throw away/thrift all the things I don’t need. My mother was right when she said a clean home is a clear mind. She’s so wise.
Spring also reminds me there is beauty in starting over. Sometimes I think we forget the beauty of grace and the ability to start fresh and move forward. This year I’m trying hard to learn how to accept and practice grace in my life. Reminding myself to let go and live in grace instead of that awful state of perfection. Can I get an amen? As Spring slowly crosses over each of our states and you watch new flowers push their way through the dirt, I hope you are reminded that God’s grace is sufficient. In moments when we are weak He is strong. When we feel dead inside with nothing left to give that is when He picks us up and brushes us off.
Without God’s grace we can easily allow weeds of bitterness and doubt to cover us, but the moment we let His grace cover us our blooms start to show.
My hope for you today is that you are able to find a moment to sit still with your favorite cup of coffee or tea and let God’s grace flow over you like the change of a new season.
