Yesterday morning as I was heading out to church, I was struck by the immediate change I felt when I opened my door and walked out. Suddenly life was much less busy, I could take a minute to breathe, and various memories of events from last summer flooded my mind. It made me really long for summer to arrive. I felt it was on the way. Mornings when I could just get up whenever and if I wanted to go out early and do errands, do something with friends, I could and I could take my time.
Today when I came home the temperature had really warmed up and I could smell summer. Yesterday I felt it. Today I could smell it. I came home to the smell of freshly cut grass. If that isn’t the perfect summer smell, I don’t know what is. Between that and yesterday, I have now got the fever…spring or summer, I’ve got it.
Big reason I’ve got it: I cannot wait until I can head back up to the mountains. I believe we can open our house in the mountains in April, but I’ve got it so bad right now that I just want to GO THERE and do a hike or something on a Saturday. Maybe in April go up on a Friday with people and stay the night (free lodging, friends!) and hike on Saturday… I don’t know, but I can’t wait to see this again… Any takers??
There is nothing like seeing something like this early in the morning or as the sun is setting…or any time really. God is a pretty fantastic creator.
